The cinematic cars of “Un homme et une femme, 20 ans déjà” (1986)
Could this be the case of a good chase (race?) scene buried in an otherwise unimpressive movie? That could very well be what we have on our hands with 1986’s “Un homme et une femme, 20 ans déjà”, which collected a whopping 5.6/10 rating on IMDb and an even more unsparing 33% on Rotten Tomatoes. If the brief clip below is any indication, though, perhaps the film may be worth sitting through. This highly choreographed, oddly dispassionate (where’s a raving Dennis Hopper when you need one?) scene plays out like an intricate dance between all your favorite 1980s saloon cars, not to mention a precursor to the much loved “Ronin”. From the Lancia Thema to the Peugeot 505 to the BMW E28 528i, they’re (almost) all here (sorry, Alfisti).
The original 1966 film was highlighted awhile back here.
Hat tip to Clement!
