Short Film of the Day: Rendezvous

Why Watch? This short is infamous for the tall tale of how it got made and the danger it represents. The story as I heard it was that Claude Lelouch had some film left over from another project and decided to strap a gyro-stabled camera to his car for a little joyride.

The result is a high speed, POV drag through the streets of Paris early in the morning while a few other vehicles and pedestrians hustle to get out of the way.

Plus, it’s a romance! How sweet is that?

What Will It Cost? Just nine minutes of your time.

Does it get better any better than that? Only if we made sure don’t get hit by a car while you watch. Check out Rendezvous for yourself:


Directed By: Claude Lelouch
