    Default Citroens in movies

    Hi there,
    i stumbled over this film review and was wondering if anybody has seen it?

    The goddess of 1967

    What other movies with Citroens are there ? (apart from the Louis de Funès ones )
    I can recall another very nice and moody film with a DS as main part of the story called "Cold Fever"
    Also for those who have seen "Team America" there is a DS driving through one of the first scenes...great movie btw.
    any other movies you can recommend?
    cheers Marty

    The 1971 movie "Homo Eroticus" has some scenes which demonstrate very well the capabilities of a DS suspension.

    Love the scenes where the older character is driving and the spoke of the steering wheel is pointing upwards! Almost as good as the scene in "Driving Lessons" (Rupert Grint) where they are driving along the road and the gear stick is showing in about 1st gear position.

    You can also look at imcdb.org

    Hi Marty

    I have seen that film. It features the DS a lot as the title suggests... some lovely scenes of it in the Australian desert. The story itself is a tad left of field though, not quite what I expected but plenty of scenes with the car. Actually one of the cars used in the film (there were 2) was recently sold at auction.

    Default 2cv and caravan

    Wasnt that brilliant, the 2cv and caravan!!!!

    For about half the movie.

    I thought it was all going to end when they were both pointed at the hill side or cliff.

    A bit of an ordinary movie, but I sprang to life when the 2cv and caravan appeared.

    Btw, put mine way for another week. I LOVE mine so much. The best and most enjoyable drive, and sad every Sunday night when it goes away for another week.

    No ones mentioned Maigret?

    I'm starting to think I'm the only one who sees it, its about a French detective set in the 1950's. He rides around in the back of a Citroen big 6 (I think) with the extra windows and all the cops drive mostly L15's or 4CV's and 203's. Street scenes are full of French cars.

    Its on every Wednesday night at 8.30

    Its a modern brittish production in english. The only thing that gives away its not made in the 50's is that the cars are in much better condition then the way the French treated them when they were new. 2Cv's with shinny 2 pack paint, OMG.

    The irony of this version of Maigret is that it was mostly filmed in Hungary! But yes, the cars are great even if they are too shiny.

    Enjoyable French movie last night on SBS amongst all the usual Christmas drivel. Micmac, a comedy made in 1999. One man and his friends wage war on international arms dealers, very Christmassy!

    Opening scenes gave us a D ambulance plus an H Van and the bad guys were chauffeured around in a pair of C6. Perhaps the automotive star of the show was the small German three wheel truck, a Tempo Boy.

    You can also get "Humain, trop humain" on YouTube complete, divvied into 5 parts. Intersperses the GS assembly line at Aulnay-sous-Bois with autoshow footage. I think it's trying to show how dehumanizing working at an assembly plant can be. I look at it a little differently.

    Also- amazingly good was the animated film "Ratatouille". 2CVs along with other delightful automotive surprises. I mean, when was the last time you saw a Facel HK500 in anything​?

    This one was pointed out to me yesterday by past member Brett R. For D fans, On YouTube - Life in Australia, Destination Hobart - mid 1960's - check out what disembarks from the ship near the end, and is then seen driving up the street.

    Only caught the last half last night. Loved the 'magnetic' C6 scene & the last one in the 'Arabian' desert! It's on the 'must watch' list over the next few days. What I saw was very enjoyable! As said, better than the usual Christmas TV rubbish!
    Thanks for the link as I couldn't find it on SBS.

    OMG!!! Blasphemer!!!!

    More seriously- Eureka? I had never heard of that one. What's the story? The only American series I know of that had a DS in any capacity was The Mentalist. Supposedly that car really does belong to Patrick Jane.

    They got their revenge by making almost every GS rust into the ground!

    The French GS sites say the Année Modèle 1972 were made with the least amount of tin worm per square inch and having owned two, I would agree.

    But yes, a great doco!

    You see a 15H 6 Traction with its whatthehellisthiscar licence plate in the Hitchcock film, To Catch a Thief throughout the early part of the film...
