THE CARS THAT ATE PARIS

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Peter Weir's first film is a bizarre and offbeat comedy-horror. 'The Cars That Ate Paris' chronicles a mutated Australian township, Paris, which survives by cannibalising the vehicles of unwary travellers and leaving the occupants either dead or 'veggies' for medical experimentation. Consequently the town's currency consists of tyres, radios and other automobile memorabilia. Centring on the hapless Arthur who after looses his brother in an 'accident' on the outskirts of town, is taken in by the mayor and his family, and comes to witness the seedy truth of the town's activities and the growing tensions between the young men of the town and the older generation. At once gory and comic, the film deftly skirts genres and shows the skill and confidence of the filmmaker that we now know Weir to be.
