"C'etait un Rendezvous" estará disponível em Blu-Ray

C'etait un Rendezvous film scene
O filme francês C'etait un Rendezvous, do diretor Claude LeLouch, foi banido em 1976 no seu país de origem, por causa de uma cena onde um carro percorre as ruas de Paris em alta velocidade, e o motorista, por alguma razão, não poderia ir mais devagar, sequer parar nos semáforos e obedecer placas de regulamentação.

Toda a cena foi feita em apenas um take. Para aumentar ainda mais a curiosidade, 37 anos depois, não se sabe ao certo qual era o carro e o piloto que participaram da cena. E para aumentar ainda mais o mito, a britânica Spirit Level Film irá distribuir o filme em Blu-Ray.

O lançamento da versão doméstica de C'etait un Rendezvous virá acompanhado de um concurso que irá sortear uma inscrição a um clube de motoristas e a oportunidade de dirigir uma Ferrari durante um final de semana.

Banned French film "Cʼétait un Rendezvous" finally released in high definition

London, England, 27th December 2012 -- Banned in 1976 amongst public outrage, the film that forces it's audience to confront their exhilaration at a totally immoral and reprehensible act has been re-mastered from the original negative in high definition for release on BluRay and DVD.

Seminal French director Claude Lelouchʼs, "Cʼétait un Rendezvous" was for years only available as a pirate VHS changing hands at $50 a piece and more recently via poor quality YouTube streams. As the ultimate adrenaline-fueled bad-boy viewing experience with it's surprise twist at the end itʼs delighted petrolheads and film buffs for over a quarter of a century. It's spawned highly irresponsible copycats (even Jay Leno), is the father of countless road racing video games and over the years has become steeped in myths:
- Was Lelouch really arrested when it was first shown?
- Who drove the car? Was it Lelouch or a hired Formula 1 driver?
- What was the car? Was it really the iconic Ferrari 275 GTB?
- Is it real ? If so, how did he do it?

Terrifying yet life-affirming, Rendezvous was made in one take, with no edits, no closing off streets, no speeding up of footage, no special effects. Often imitated (even Nissan spent
$6m trying to reproduce it for an advert they called "The Run") but never surpassed, it simply has to be seen to be believed.

Richard Symons of Spirit Level Film said "A test Imax screening finally pushed us to remaster and re-release the film in HD - the audience went nuts. The print looked sensational and we were hit with a deluge of requests for a re-mastered re-release and cinema run. As Top Gearʼs Jeremy Clarkson said, "It makes Bullitt look like a cartoon".
