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

I saw this movie when it came out in the theaters in France and at the time did not have any children but I promised myself that someday if I had a daughter, I would name her "Harmonie". I did. Today I have a daughter named "Harmony" (just changed the spelling). Great movie !!
