The beginning The Escape Machine video created for Voyages-snfc.com is so Kubrick's 2001. People huddled around a black monolith that mysteriously appears in Paris. Three "lucky" people nervously walk up to push the red button.
A creepy HAL-like voice asks, "If you could leave now, where would you go?"
Appuyez sur le bouton.
Surprise! Three people win billets to their destination of choice.
I love the French in how they make everything so exaggeratedly large. Think: big-hands in Michel Gondry's The Science of Sleep. I love the big lips that gives the lady a congratulatory kiss.
