C’était Un Rendez-Vous

Rendez Vous

Wow, this is one hell of a short film. I hadn’t seen C’était un rendez-vous in a couple of years, so I figured it was about time to revisit it. C’était un rendez-vous is a nine-minute, one take, one-shot film mounted on the front of a Mercedes speeding through Paris at 5:30 in the morning.

It was shot in 1976 by Claude Lelouch and is credited with starting the cinéma vérité movement. There are no special effects or camera trickery, it’s very real and very dangerous.

To see more: Grab the DVD for the full experience, watch the recently produced making of and check out a new music video for Snow Patrol’s – “Open Your Eye’s” featuring five minutes of Rendez-vous.
