Trivia While filming, Tati and his crew came across a playful group of street dogs. Tati made several shots of them, which he later used to connect scenes. When filming was over, he couldn't bear leaving them alone, and he placed an advertisement in the newspaper, calling them "movie stars"; all dogs eventually where taken in by respectable families.

Goofs Perhaps this can be forgiven in such a whimsical comedy, but whenever M. Arpel parks his car in his tiny home garage, he always pulls in front-end first; however, whenever he leaves for work in the morning, the car always exits the garage front-end first. (Possibly a subtle sight gag on Tati's part?) See more »
