C'Etait Un Rendezvous


If you are reading this, chances are you know all about this film, and even if you haven’t seen it you’ve probably heard the folklore. Did it actually happen, what car was it, was the driver anyone we know and was there any post-edits to make it look faster than it was? It was even banned in 1976, and you can't get cooler than that.


We don’t care much about all that and when you watch it we recommend you forget the rumours and immerse yourself in what has been lauded as the best car film ever made. Ronin is good, Bullitt is great but this is right up there with the best.

    while I'm moaning, any chance ph could make a more friendly aye-phone browser as its a nightmare to post and edit of it. it usually fails with a lengthy post as well.

    Given that the engine noise is fake anyway, you might as well watch the music video version.

    yep engine noise overlaid. I got it free from youtube a few years ago until they pulled it.

    Except it wasn't real (sped up with a fake soundtrack) and nothing was being chased. Fail.
