Phew, bit of a blogathon tonight, especially after the blog drought I've been suffering from. Anyway on with the good stuff...

Top Gear have mentioned this film a couple of times, and Snow Patrol have used it as the video for their latest single, Eyes Open so I thought I'd go and watch it for myself.

So what have I watched I hear you cry? C'était un rendez-vous by Claude Lelouch, a short 10 minute film that is pretty amazing and scary at the same time. According to Wikipedia this is a cult film, and I can see why. Driving at high speed through the streets of Paris this is a very engaging film, and the soundtrack of that engine (even if it is dubbed as suggested) is magnificent. Don't watch a bit of it, watch all of it, and take time to make sure you can watch it uninterrupted, and make sure you do it with the sound on!

Watched it? Good, now go to this website (make sure you follow his simple instructions), and through the power of Google Maps and the art of the mashup watch it again but this time follow the route the car takes through the streets of Paris, genius!

So, what did you think to it? Have you seen it before, just seen it, did it provoke emotion in you? Let me know...
