Well, I won't mess with AF but if you want a sad bike story (no not the bicycle thief) but another foreign fill called Beijing Bicycle. If you have not seen it, it is pretty good but brutal and sad at the same time. It is all subtitled but easy to follow. I recommend it if you have nothing to do and want to see that things are not much different no matter where in the world you live. Not really a classic bicycle film but more life story centered around cycling.
Here is the link to the film bio.
