A French film starring David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli. Produced by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Leon: The Professional), District B13 is one of the films introducing parkour to the action genre. It features some of those most intense chase scenes you will ever see, none of which use CG. It was written after seeing David & Cyril's stuntman portfolio as an excuse to put the two together in a film. The result is breathtaking, and has even been ripped off in newer movies like Casino Royale's opening chase scene (except again, District B13 didn't use any CG). Go see it, or at least YouTube the opening chase scene.
God damn I wish I could move like they do in District B13, I wouldn't ever need a car if I did.
