Seemingly in homage to the legendary 1976 chase film Rendezvous, which we featured on the Buddha a few months back, there is a new class of guerilla drivers in Europe who have to do French filmmaker Claude Lelouch one better. Only these guys do it as some sort of defiant garage project from beginning to end, as they choose cars, tune them to ridiculous power and sensitivity and then hit the streets to prove their mettle.
In this, their first chapter, the people of Getaway In Stockholm break the sound barrier with a Porsche 911 Carerra twin turbo, outfitted with multiple cameras which capture their escape from traffic officers and the ensuing chase through early morning Stockholm in gritty detail.
The grinding gears through the narrow pedestrian parkways reminds one of Frankenheimer and DeNiro’s overlooked spy thriller Ronin, but of course, this is no movie set.
…so to speak.
