Edit
Trivia In his Chicago Sun-Times review, Roger Ebert wrote that the character of Daxiat, the collaborationist critic, "is such an evil monster that he must surely be inspired by someone Truffaut knows". He is partly based on the critic Alain Laubreaux (1899-1968), who wrote for the anti-Semitic journal "Je suis partout". The scene where Bernard (Gérard Depardieu) gives him a beating is inspired by an incident when Jean Marais punched Laubreaux. See more »
