Hi, Alan!
The speeding car is explained by the film title, which is being spoken exactly then, i.e., the dead bridegroom is taking away the bride.

Hi Andris,

Yes, I understood the scene, but would the relevance have been improved if we had seen a bit of the bride and the dead bridegroom (suitably dead-looking) in the car together first?

Great show!

Alan

Thanks for your suggestion! But I think it would have required to shoot against the 180 degree rule or otherwise would have confused the audience.

Brave man! The way people drive where I live I don't know if I'd ever feel comfortable doing that, no matter how much I trusted my crew. Thanks for all the extra insight, and I hope your reshoot goes well today!
