Wondering how most of those long "tracking" and steadicam-style shots were done? All handheld? There are numerous like 5-minute takes of people walking up and down the streets of Paris, up and down escalators, all over the place! Some of the shots look handheld, but a few of them look smoother than handheld. Was any type of steadying device, early steadicam, or "ghetto dolly" used in those shots?
