C'etait un Rendezvous

release year: 1977
genre: short racing clip
viewing setting: home DVD, 7/2/03

synopsis: Someone attached a camera to a really fast car, then spontaneously drove at 100+ MPH through the Paris streets one morning, totally disregarding traffic signals and the risk of crashes or pedestrians. This is that nine minutes.

impressions: Wow. I think my synopsis there should pretty much sum this up. It's amazing that no one or nothing was destroyed during this joyride.

things to watch for: All of it; also the ending.

something this movie has that no other movie has: Live-action view of a real car running real red lights at really high speeds.

acting: n/a, in fact there are no lines here

final word: Worth spending 9 minutes watching.
