Obscure xm movie spot

Post by trampsterdave » Mon Dec 17, 2018 2:52 am

not surprisingly -a French movie..Read My Lips [Sur mon levres]...good movie -and has a scene where a real estate ''gentleman's' car is broken into -very quickly I might add -and the thief knows how to also disable the alarm very quickly- and its a silver xm -see front nose and drivers door only...but now I know why the bonnet release is on the 'wrong' side.
Cheers, dave

Knows how to use the parking brake

I seem to recall that the car 'cast' as the NCB executive's transport in Brassed Off was a dark coloured XM and I came to the conclusion that it was chosen to convey the NCB's stance as unpatriotic in this little movie about mine closures in Britain in the 90s. The XM does not get much screen time though.
