Paris at full speed

Amazing film from Claude Lelouch: "C’etait un rendez-vous", 1976 which is about from one side of Paris to the other in less than 8 minutes in a Ferrari 275/GTB. Count (if you can) the number of red lights the car is passing by! Some background info on the Independent web site.

    have you ever saw ,a french movie directed by Jean Pierre Jeunet? i like it very much.the movie was a tableau of a beautiful while paintfully shy waitress’ special life.one morning she makes a surprising discovery and sees her life drastically changed for the better! From then on, Amelie dedicates herself to helping others find happiness … in the most delightfully unexpected way! and she meets Nino Quicampoix,the hero…….i also like the theme music of this film,especially the sound of accordion and harmonica which make me feel very lighthearted:) it was brightly colored.

    Have seen the film quite a while ago. Remember not having been as impressed as most of the critics and fans worldwide, but can’t remember much of the film now. I suppose a pleasant experience at the time, but not that memorable.
