Peter Weir Retrospective: The Cars That Ate Paris (1974)

Trevor Hogg begins his Peter Weir retrospective with a look at the Australian film-maker's debut feature...

The Cars That Ate Paris, 1974.

Directed by Peter Weir.

Starring John Meillon, Terry Camilleri, Kevin Miles, Rick Scully, Max Gillies and Bruce Spence.

Synopsis:

Residents in the mysterious Australian Outback town of Paris redirect passing traffic with the intention of creating automobile accidents. The wrecked vehicles are then sold for their parts, and the injured travelers are subjected to medical experiments; further mayhem ensues when the close-knit community decides to adopt an unscathed survivor.

While touring France an unexpected traffic detour provided internationally respected director Peter Weir with the inspiration for his first feature length film. “Weeks later in England,” he began, “I saw a front page story in the paper about a shooting and some crime of passion, while down in a very small column was that in Britain that weekend 23 people had

From the Files of Fangoria: The Cars That Ate Paris

  • Fangoria
The best part about this unfettered access to Fangoria’s Files is being able to track down those films Academy Award Nominated directors would rather forget. Sure Peter Weir made us all tear up in front of our girlfriends with such films as Gallipoli, The Truman Show and Witness, but what kind of emotion was he trying to evoke with one of his earlier films, The Cars That Ate Paris from 1974?

The film was released in the Us as The Cars That Eat People. I guess they figured American audiences wouldn’t be that sympathetic to the French. It took me a good twenty minutes of viewing and language deciphering to realize that the Paris they were referring to was actually a small town in Australia. At first glance, it looks like Maximum Overdrive meets Herbie The Love Bug with sadly no Emilio or Lindsey. However, it shares more in

Today's Short: "Fishy"

A man in a panicked mood dines with a dead fish, dressing it up as a woman and feeding it. He begins a strange one-sided conversation with the fish, which steadily turns dispiriting. This film is kind of funny, kind of sad and kind of creepy. It won 3rd prize at the 2006 Tropfest, Australia's biggest short film festival. If you recognized the main actor in the film from somewhere, that's because he's Terry Camilleri, an Australian actor best known for playing Napoleon in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure.
