Hirondelle


Beauty right out of Paris. Fantastic little film.

Copenhagen got a mention in the New York Times in an article about European cities curbing car traffic. Yay!

Note: there's also a photo from Copenhagen in the accompanying slide show, but most of the shots are from Zurich.

Beautiful little film, indeed; but autoplay still sucks.

Very cliché, very male chauvinist pig-oriented... Am disappointed.

I would have thought a Male Chauvinist Pig oriented video would be one where she was forced onto a more gender appropriate "girl's" bike more suited to her burka.

This sort of disgusting display of female freedom is going to be the downfall of civilization.

As a woman, I do find the film a little objectifying. Beautifully shot, though.

Well, I hate to break this to you, but even though I love them dearly and have been know to gaze at pictures of them with longing and desire, really, after all, no matter how beautiful:

A bicycle is just an object.

I don't think the bike is the right size for her. I know that's a technicality, and I am supposed to just be noticing the woman, but she seems to be reaching too far for the handlebars, and she doesn't seem comfortable standing over the bike.

Well, I liked the bike. Someone could tell me how can I find this type (brand or model) so thin, simple and in colours. Thanks!!!
