FAKE  Shocked can i ask how its fake?


Kev

There was a long discussion 2-3 years ago about this on the forum - tried to find it but havn't got the time now.

Lot's of pointers in the film itself (virtually empty streets, dubbed soundtrack, etc) and it was concluded that it was a set-up.

Because the man who made it says so. See this: http://www.axe-net.be/rdv/presentation.php (translate using google or similar).

The car was a Mercedes 450SEL 6.9 with a front mounted gyro stabilized camera. The soundtrack (Ferrari 275 GTB) was added later.

Here's a link with Claude Lelouch explaining (in French) how the film ("C'était un Rendez-Vous") was made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHn5Q15kaIA

As nickliv says it's still a great film.

Le Mans - the how you get there is not quite as important as being there.

I made the mistake of watching Bullitt the other day......what a load of crap. Anyone else spot how many times he overtakes the Beetle?

The only thing that made it worthwhile was the heavy in the back of the other car winding down the window before shooting  Grin

i was crushed when i saw that expose about how it was 'really' made. rendez vous is such an awesome piece of filmmaking and damn exhilarating. i showed it to my friends who couldn't care less about cars and they were very impressed. part of me still believes that it was real and the lelouche wont admit it because he doesnt want to get in trouble/ be seen as reckless. some of the parts where he is accelerating or passing other cars look too fast to be done with the merc even if the film was sped up. i prefer being in denial.

here are some ronin clips with the S8.

Take a long look at this web site.  http://www.rjsmith.com/bullitt-locations.html

Click the picture links for comparisons of then / now locations in the movies and a shot by shot description of the car chase scenes, and how the clips are repeated from different camera angles.

Is Rendezvous really a fake Sad

Surely a 6.9 merc of that era wouldnt go round corners like that... My Dad had one for a weekend just before I arrived  in '72 and said it was like driving an oil tanker that would spin the wheels rather than accelerate  Grin

Gutted.... I thought it was real Sad

I saw Vantage Point this weekend at the local multiplex...

Not a bad chase in that film complete with obligatory scattered of tables / chairs / pedestrians as the chase car drives through the pavement cafe arches, and lots of squeeling handbrake turns before the monumental pile up at the end.

The Duel.

Thanks Nick for backing me on this.

The bit I like was at the service station with the snakes.

I bet the truck didn't 50,000 gallons onboard. But it was erie and a good film

Has anyone considered Quentin Tarantino's latest fun piece....Death Proof???
The chases have a very 70's feel, and the cars are great

What about "Two Lane Blacktop"?
Nice 55 Chev Gasser and a new (at the time) Pontiac GTO. Overall, the movie stank, but the racing sequences were good.
