See the car chase scene in ”Ronin”

Racecar driver-turned-director John Frankenheimer adapted the car-mounted camera techniques he used in his film Grand Prix for the white-knuckle chase sequences of this Robert De Niro spy thriller. A multiple-car chase through the narrow, steep streets of Nice is one-upped only by the sheer lunacy of an against-the-traffic pursuit through tunnels under the Seine in Paris (much like the one where Princess Diana died). ”There was no acting required on my part, believe me…” says actor and terrified passenger Jonathan Pryce.
