Makes Steve McQueen s Bullitt look like a cartoon said Top Gear s Jeremy Clarkson Banned in 1976, terrifying yet exhilarating and absolutely compulsive this now legendary film with its surprise ending through beautiful 70s Paris has been shrouded in myths since its first release.
Was seminal French director Claude Lelouch really arrested when it was first shown? Was it a Formula 1 driver in the iconic Ferrari 275 GTB at the wheel?, If it s real, how did he do it ?
Lelouch s electrifying 9-minute drive has to be seen to be believed. No car chase on film has, or ever will, come close. The reality of no special effects, edits or blocking off streets is terrifying.

In Gesamtlänge von 8:39 fährt ein Mann von der Porte Dauphine zu seiner Geliebten an die Sacré-Cœur de Montmartre. Soweit zum Inhalt. Claude Lelouch hatte noch eine Filmrolle übrig und drehte diesen Kurzfilm mit einer an der Stoßstange eines Mercedes 450 SEL 6,9 mit Hydropneumatik-Federung montierten Kamera um starke Vibrationen während der Fahrt zu vermeiden. Später wurde der Ton eines Ferraris darübergelegt! Mit angeblich bis zu 200 km/h soll Lelouch angeblich selbst die Strecke gefahren sein. Wer den Film sieht kann an manchen Stellen nur denken, das der Mensch alle Schutzengel von Paris um sich gehabt haben muß. Heute in Zeiten von Verkehrskontrollen, Blitzern, Fotoampeln etc. wäre ein solcher Film undenkbar, der Fahrer hätte seinen Lappen wohl auf Lebenszeit los.
So bleibt ein einmaliger Film, den man unbedingt mal gesehen haben muß, den man für dieses Geld aber nicht unbedingt auf DVD benötigt!
C'était un Rendezvous blows my mind, every single time. It's raw and perfect, crude and insane.
Here's a great interview with Richard Symons who persuaded Lelouch in 2003 to authorize a DVD-release: [...] Although at the time Symons must have known more background the DVD is decidedly tight-lipped on that. There are a couple of text plates which celebrate the surrounding myth and that's it.
Only in 2006 someone invited Claude Lelouch for a Making-of which revealed a bunch of interesting factoids: The Mercedes which was used for its advanced suspension -- which made the take feasible in the first place. 3 people in the car with Lelouch driving. The hidden assistant with a failing radio at the mind-blowing passage through Place du Carrousel. An explanation for the late abort just before turning into Rue Lepic and the ensuing improvised route along Rue Caulaincourt. Lelouch saying "We would do one take. If the gods of cinema would be with us, fine."
I wonder how they created and almost perfectly matched the Ferrari's sound to the Mercedes take. Assuming they did not actually drive it they must have simulated the run in some way. All the brakes and downshifts pretty much nail the Mercedes run. There's reverb in just the right places. Great craft there.
Apparently for the DVD-production Symons had access to the 35mm-negative. Here is hoping that there is a chance for a Bluray. I'd buy it in a heartbeat. While the DVD is the best we can get now it leaves much to ask for in image quality. I'd love to see it on a big screen and the DVD is just not up for it.
Typisch Lelouch, der den Typ des sensiblen Teufelskerls wie kein Zweiter portraitierte. Einer der auf das Individuelle setzte in einer Zeit, in der die 68er Kollektivromantik propagierten.
C'était un rendez-vous ist eigentlich ein Vorfilm. Sowas gab es früher. Aber er beinhaltet wesentliche Züge seiner Hauptwerke, Individualität, Extravaganz und die Story eines Mannes und einer Frau. Gedreht wurde aus einem Daimler, der Sound stammt von Lelouchs Ferrari...

To quote one review on Amazon: “…nearly 30 years ago I saw the film on 35mm, and it was so intense, that the memory of it has never left me. It’s like watching Leo Kottke in full flight on his 12-string; you see it, you hear it, but nonetheless your mind refuses to accept that it’s possible. Buy it. Buy it now. And while you wait for it to arrive, practice holding your breath for 9 minutes, as you’ll need that ability….. “
Another reviewer notes: “…No streets were closed, for Lelouch was unable to obtain a permit…. …Upon showing the film in public for the first time, Lelouch was arrested…” Reckless driving of course… and he was convicted, although he has always maintained it was a professional driver… whom he has never named. The sound is simply the car, tires, street noises, pigeons, garbage trucks, etc. There’s nothing quite like it, and probably never will be."
One can get into the details of what car the film was made with, what car the sound track sounds like, blah blah blah. Some say the car never actually exceeds 100mph. Like that makes the monotonous blasting through red lights any safer! And then there are the pedestrians, trash trucks, and the lady walking her dog. Pigeons too. Watching this will make you shake your head,or laugh, or smile wryly, If you don't have any physical response, check your pulse. You may be dead. This is all 100% real, the camera is just making pictures. No CGI, no undercranking or overcranking, no dark room magic, no rotoscoping. THIS is how its done.
I don't have any data one way or the other, and I frankly don't care. The bits that I got via mouth regarding this movie was that it was a 275, and that it was driven by an amateur, and that nothing was arranged in advance in terms of traffic control. We've been trading fuzzy VHS copies for years in our I-car groups here in the North Bay, and everybody who views the film loves it.
If you enjoy cars at all, or if the music of (what sounds very much like) a Ferrari V12 at full song does anything for you, just buy the video. This tape still makes all the hairs on my arm stand up on end every time I watch it, and I first saw the film in the early 90's.
Doubters aside, this is one of the more enjoyable raw works of automotive film I have ever seen. We can debate at length about what moving parts actually made this film, but the thrills/enjoyment factor of this piece speak for themselves under any circumstances.
Then the overpriced, disappointingly short but sweaty-palms intense "Rendezvous" is an absolute MUST-HAVE.
I see it again and again. Unlike other reviewers I pray it does not come in a DVD version as I shall feel compelled to invest also in that edition if for no other reason then at least to get some audio commentary by Lelouch and hopefully clear up just exactly WHAT vehicle he or whomever it is, is driving? Since there are several seemingly unfounded opinions then I shall submit with great certainty that it is indeed a Lamborghini Miura and the driver none other than Patrick Stewart.
Being a father of 3 I must admit that I can no longer condone the sort of driving which is completely irresponsible and sociopathic. So unlike other reviewers, and while I do believe there are no camera tricks, I think Lelouch staged the shoot and blocked off streets just out of view - by believing this I can go on and view it again and again without a guilty conscience.
A great excuse towards your spouse is that this movie doubles as an intense lovestory. You can view it purely as a carnut flick, focusing on the engine sounds and screeching tires; or you can look at it as a guy who so desperately longs for his loved one whom he has just promised to meet, that he drives full throttle risking own and others limbs to meet her AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
