Storyline

It is an early, flaming morning of August and Paris slowly begins to wake up. In the stillness, where the dimming lights of the city battle with the coming of the day, a mighty mechanical roar breaks the silence. Without a doubt, it is the unmistakable and distinct sound of a V-12 engine that belongs to a Ferrari 275GTB, revving and shifting up gears as it enters furiously the tunnel at Porte Dauphine. In the same fashion, as it exits up on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, flat out, the driver aims for the Place de la Concorde heading for the Palais Garnier, in a mad dash down-shifting inside the heart of the city. In squealing tyres, the mighty noise is scattering pigeons and petrified pedestrians across the way, while the car enters narrow, slippery cobbled roads with early morning drivers. Now, it is clear enough that this heart-pounding, nerve-wracking ride continues its course towards the Place Pigalle. With the final destination at the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur and with a last ...

magnifique
29 December 2003 | by (Cambridge-ish) – See all my reviews

er, wow! I didn't really know what to expect but despite seeing it several times (only got the video a couple of days ago) there are moments that you can't help but wonder what'll happen, even if you know.

Love the way that the guy obviously has his foot flat on the floor almost the entire duration, red lights or no red lights. Something I don't understand is the "surprise" ending - the film is called "it was a rendezvous/meeting" ..thought it was a rather good ending though.. I thought it was all pretty great to be honest. Yay!
