Trivia

The main actors, all of North African descent, did not know of France's discrimination towards foreign soldiers serving in the French army during World War 2 until filming began.
This film's closing epilogue states: "In 1959, a law was passed to freeze the pensions of infantrymen from former French colonies about to become independent. In 2002, after endless hearings, the French government was ordered to pay the pensions in full. But successive governments have pushed back this payment."
The right arm of the actor Jamel Debbouze is paralyzed since an accident in his youth. But this fact is in the film totally ignored. Jamel carries a gun around with him, although he could not fire them.
