The film is adapted from the play written by both directors, created in Paris in 2010 (théâtre Edouard-VII) staged by Bernard Murat, and sharing the exact same cast, except for the character of Claude, who was, on stage, played by Jean-Michel Dupuis. And of course, some minor characters have been added for the film : the two children, the pizza boy, and the hospital crew.
