    I think that is the name of it anyway.

    It's basically a short film where someone has strapped a camera to the front af a car and then goes tearassing about the streets of some European city Rome/Paris?

    Is this out on shiny disc?

    If there's a scene in it like I described then it could be.

    Rendezvous link here.

    Personally I've always found the Getaway in Stockholm series to be pinacle of reckless road/street driving around a real city:)

    The film's full title is C'etait un Rendez-vous and is a fantastic 9 minutes of (rather reckless) film-making. You might also like the new title from Spirit Level called Cobra Ferrari Wars about the Shelby Cobra's battle to beat Ferrari at Le Mans - a great 2 disc DVD.

    I have Rendezvous on VHS from when they showed it on BBC4 a couple of years ago. Excellent stuff. :thumbsup:

    There is a bit of a con job though, as the camera is so low down, it increases the sense of speed, so it may not actuall be that quick. Although there is no editing or speeded up camera work, there are rumors that the sound is over dubbed with a meatier sounding car (ie Ferrari) and the actual car might be a Renault.

    Possible to work out using a map and stopwatch what the average speed was.
