Parkour and functionalism - the extreme

This chase scene from the movie "Casino Royale" is a depiction of parkour. This example of functional running and vaulting is the most EXTREME. And while some of the scene is completed using the magic of cinematic editting, other parts are true parkour (as the black man is a real life parkour practitioner).

I'll discuss the art of parkour as it relates to functionalism a bit later.

For now...enjoy.
