What do you get when you stick a taxicab, a pretty woman, and a gorgeous Frenchman together? I’d say a pretty adorable short film.

In this comical silent short film, a woman riding in the back of a taxi catches the eye of a French motorcyclist. By moped, bicycle, and foot, he manages to keep up with the cab despite all the interferences (hence title).

If you ask me, that’s a ton of effort for someone to exude just to say hello, but I guess if you feel the spark, it’s worth the trouble. So here is what this film has taught me:

  • While in cars, make eye contact with a fellow motorist.
  • If a guy works hard to get your attention, he deserves a chance.
  • Go to Paris. Now.
