RonB on the M100 site posted this link on the making of Rendezvous (for all you French Speakers)  and I see the movie itself is back as well.



It had been removed from youtube for copyright infringement but I'm thrilled to see it's back.

Here is the post to the movie itself

Rendezvous

And here is the post to the making of the movie

The making of Rendezvous

For those who may not know Claude Lelouche strapped a camera onto the front of a 450SEL 6.9 and drove across Paris at high speed and in the early morning - he then dubbed the sound of a Ferrari onto the sound track.

He chose a 6.9 for the performance and for the stable platform offered by the hydro-pneumatic suspension.

I believe he was arrested and served time in Jail following the release of the film.
