When Pierre confronts Pauline at her cousin's house, Pauline is interrupted in reading a Gallimard book entitled 'L'Ennemi public n° 2', written by Gérard Lecas
. Lecas, while an author of not overwhelming popularity, was also involved in filmmaking, particularly in the films of director Eric Rohmer
, and was in fact working as a sound assistant on Pauline at the Beach
(1983). 'L'Ennemi public n° 2', his debut novel, had been published in 1982, the year in which the film was being made. See more
