At work on Adieu Philippine (Goodbye Philippine) (dir. Jacques Rozier, 1962), director of photography René Mathelin with the entire crew and a few cast members, in a Citreoën 2CV with deflated tires, August 1960.
In 1960, after A bout de souffle (Breathless) was released to great acclaim, the film's producer Georges de Beauregard produced the first feature by Godard's friend Jacques Rozier, Adieu Philippine (Goodbye Philippine).
The film revolves around the character of Michel, a young technician in the fledgling TV industry who is due for military service in two months at the time of the Algerian War. Juliette and Liliane are inseparable best friends, and aspiring actresses, who hang around outside the TV studio. Michel invites them in to watch, flirts with them both, and dates them separately and together. When Michel goes on a holiday to Corsica, just before he is drafted, the girls follow.
Working with a very small budget but on a large scale, Rozier managed to do a long tracking shot on a deserted road in Corsica, under Cauchetier's attentive eye, with an old, gutted car that had its tires deflated and was intentionally weighed down with as many crew members as possible.
