A short film by Claude Lelouch, titled C’├ętait un rendez-vous, is presented below. It was shot in the streets of Paris at 5:30 am on an August morning in 1976. Lelouch did not have a permit, so the roads were not cleared of traffic or pedestrians. The soundtrack is dubbed from a symphony played on a Ferrari 275, adding a lot to the excitement of the footage. The actual car used was a Mercedes 450SEL according to Lelouch, who mounted a gyro stabilized camera to the front of the vehicle and shot it in one take with former F1 driver Johnny Servoz-Gavin at the wheel. It is quite a bit of driving.
