    Default tinker tailor soldier spy - DS starring role

    to anyone who is keen on thrillers, and wants to see a very nice looking DS in a starring role in a new movie, i would highly recommend seeing tinker tailor soldier spy.

    there is also a cameo by a 2CV, and a peugeot (unknown model sorry) in short succession.

    I saw that film today, the DS is beautiful, the Peugeot an immaculate white 404. There were lots of classic cars in fact as it was set in the early 70's. Good film too.

    Yes the DS was beautiful, even if the film had a few too many shots of people pondering and was a bit confusing for me.

    Can a DS really skid its wheels on take off? It must have been a manual.

    Well, maybe with shaved tires on a wet surface and a cinderblock to hold the gas pedal down...
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    You forget, a DS lays it's own oil slick where ever it goes!

    Here is the DS in the movie:

    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    The 404, from what little could be seen, looked like a 69 or 70 model (late type door trims) with an after market bonnet scoop. This sort of bonnet isn't in the parts book but I have seen it on a convertable also.

    I saw it too! Young agent was driving it! And He had driven it very rough! He was driving very fast. And I saw suspension went up when 2 people got off the car! Nicely maintained car!

    Have you seen " The days of Jackal?" There are many Citroens in that film!

    that type of sunroof would be a real boon for shooting interiors; come to think it's surprising more hero cars don't have them.
    the editor is from melbourne and would likely be a frogfancier or at least a fellow traveller herself, iirc ....
