Claude Lelouch himself was behind the camera in Monaco last Sunday morning, directing Le Grand Rendez-vous – a modern interpretation of his classic short film C’etait un Rendez-Vous from 1976, which featured a high-speed dawn raid across Paris filmed from the bumper of a mystery car (actually a Mercedes-Benz 450SEL) but dubbed with the soul-stirring V12 soundtrack of a Ferrari 275 GTB.
Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s Monaco Grand Prix was sensibly cancelled. But on the Sunday the race was poised to take place, the streets of the principality were temporarily closed to allow Scuderia Ferrari’s Monegasque boy wonder Charles Leclerc to lap his home circuit in the new 1,000HP hybrid SF90 Stradale, in front of Lelouch’s cameras. Le Grand Rendez-vous premieres on 13 June and you can check back right here to catch it.
