GALLERY 11: Nissan Micra - Do you speak Micra?

Lynch was attracted to the script for its surreal nature and for the fact that he was interested in its attempt to create a new language. The idea is that the new Micra is so original, neologisms have to be coined to describe it. So for example, we have "compacious" - an amalgam of compact and spacious. The key for Lynch was to make the car the star, as it is a new launch, whist avoiding the cliches of the category.
