Did You Know?


Some of the scenes were shot at the Channel coast near Boulogne-sur-Mer and Calais and the main character is wrong when he says "The Americans landed here". The Allied forces were expected to land there in 1944 but instead chose Normandy, some 250 km from there. However, the old German bunkers belonging to the Atlantic Wall, as well as some rare footage of the actual landing intersected into the film are real. See more »

Early Lelouch.
8 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Lelouch says that this is his third film, made at the point where he considered giving up, after two failures. Only the accident of it being sent to a festival in Stockholm where it was hailed by Ingmar Bergman kept him at it.

It is a piece of passable interest. The performances are self conscious and the cut price handling shows but it retains attention for showing it's director to be a co-conspirator with the Nouvelle Vague, complete with sustained car driving shots and a departure from conventional film form. Token plot concerns the police search for an escaped crazy.

It is not hard to see the director of Chat et Le Souris, Rendez Vous and Il y a des jours... et des lunes at work here.
