An utterly insane, bollard-dodging, pedestrian-endangering police motorcycle pursuit of one extremely slippery scooter rider through the streets of (we’re guessing) Paris.

Legendary cult-classic short film C’etait Un Rendez-Vous, shot in 1976 and featuring a high-speed, hilariously illegal thrill-ride through the streets of Paris in a Mercedes with a camera strapped to the side.

Full-screen. Volume up.
