    It is a worthwhile movie. A friend of mine put a copy on a thumbdrive for me. I've watched it a few times and get a laugh out of it every time. The Parisian traffic close-ups are memorable.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.

    Agree, these are so funny. I especially love the windscreen wipers which match the character of each car's driver! The whole film is a contrivance of silly little moments of humor. Very whimsical.

    To revisit an earlier post of mine, fans of the above would probably enjoy:
