It’s 5am And The Streets Of 1978 Paris Beg For Your Ferrariness
This is what happened obscenely early one August morning in 1978 when French film director Claude Lelouch bolted a camera to the front bumper of a Ferrari and had a still anonymous professional Formula 1 driver tear through the heart of Paris at death-defying speeds to go meet up with his girl (yeah, it ends with a hug).
“No streets were closed, for Lelouch was unable to obtain a permit.”
This is the full eight minutes, but it feels like less than three. Watch it with your feet up as high as the sound. Cheer for the pigeons, too. I think they all make it.
PS. If you’re in widescreen, enjoy…
