Found and restored by filmmaker Yann Gonzalez in 2019, this was screenwriter Savel’s (known for his collaborations with director Joseph Losey) only feature as director — credited under the pseudonym Dietrich de Velsa. The movie predates the better-known West German film Taxi zum Klo, as motorcyclist Gianfranco Longhi (in his only feature starring role) takes off from his steady beau to cruise and brake for anonymous amorous explicit encounters which unveil Paris when it sizzles. Produced by Jacques Scandelari, director of The Village People’s music videos.
