Trivia

At the time Véronique Jannot is contacted to play in this movie, she is recovering at her parents' home from an hysterectomy after a cancer. She is only 22. During the shooting, she is still under chemo- and immunotherapy but keeps it secret from the whole crew except her hairdresser and her make-up artist. Because of the treatment adverse effects, she needs to have her make-up replaced two or three times every day. That is how Alain Delon eventually discovers the truth. See more »

Toubib or not toubib.
20 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Definitely not toubib!The movie is supposed to take place during WW3,but the production is so cheap it would not impress a six -year- old;Veronique Jannot tries her best to be convincing but she will probably be more remembered for her "Madrange " ham commercials than for this bland part of an unfortunate nurse in love with toubib (doc)Delon.They say the book ("Harmonie ou les horreurs de la guerre") was good;but here we're left with the movie and it should be reserved for the most bathetic bathwater.
