Everyone around here knows Claude Lelouch for Rendezvous, everyone else knows him for his non car-related endevours. But is that fair? Cars play a role in his films, as he explained to The New York Times: The car is a very important element in my life, because in fact it is my office. It's where I do my writing. I wrote ‘Roman de Gare' on a round trip between Paris and Rome. I take my little tape recorder, and I leave behind my house, my family, my friends - because I have to be alone to write. And I let the car drive itself, without knowing where I'm going. In order to write I need to disconnect from everyday worries and everyday life, but in my car I'm constantly able to observe people, to stop at a bistro or enjoy the scenery."As you can see in the clip from above, which is from A Man And A Woman, it's quite true. If you were a director, wouldn't you? Just like if you were Lewis Hamilton you'd do epic burnouts constantly.
