“One of the greatest car chases ever, simply because it was real”

with 4 comments

“A notorious nine-minute speed through the streets of Paris, shot on a camera strapped to the front of a Ferrari 275 GTB, this injection of adrenaline was an illegal shoot which led to the arrest of filmmaker Claude Lelouch when it was first shown. Lelouch was apparently at the wheel, too. An underground classic, hailed as being the greatest car chase ever, simply because it was real.”

Who needs CGI when you’re reckless as hell and need to go meet your girlfriend at the other end of Paris?
