After her bike is stolen, a young woman scours L.A. in hopes of reuniting with her one true love. Yvette Lu and Leanne Velednitsky direct “Bike Thief,” a lo-fi comedy that’s both an ode to bike ownership and a depiction of the heartaches that come with it.

But she’s not the only one in her situation. The film itself has the feeling of a handmade flyer with a mix and match approach that’s lifted by a sequence of whimsical animation. -KA.
