Many thanks to Mathieu Martin for the “heads up” on this one. I am generally the first person to scour any EU film or programme for a twingo but this suggestion goes even further. The French film “Le Bonheur (…est dans le pre)” was released in 1995 and one of the main characters is the boss of a Renault dealership. Cue two scenes filmed inside a real showroom which contain a yellow mk1 and a collection of twingo articles that I have mostly got in my collection.
So I spotted (photos below)
- A peluche (Red and white soft toy twingo that makes an engine sound when you squeeze it
- In the same cabinet, two Solido model twingos on the same plinth (one yellow and one green)
- Twingo clock on the wall
- 2nd generation brochure next to the clock
- Red circular display. The hinges are a large version of the ball style keyrings that were available at the time.
- Second display with “Options” also in a red circle
I bought this copy from CEX on DVD for £5 including delivery.
Please feel free to share anymore suggestions for twingo spots in films.
