The famous chase sequence in Bullitt was just about perfect, but it lacked a few crucial components. For example, where was the church procession blocking the road? The oil drums bursting on the pavement? And where was the Fiat?
Le Casse gives the viewer all those things and more! Omar Sharif behind the wheel of that all-time great high-speed chase vehicle- the Opel Rekord- and Jean-Paul Balmondo trying to escape him in his screamin' Fiat 124. You may have to suspend your disbelief a touch, as that 124's rear suspension manages to survive a dozen or so death-blow curb impacts, but that's what movies are all about! Thanks to Stefan for the tip.
