Trivia

Josseline Gaël was imprisoned for collaboration with the French Gestapo for her relationship with Antonin Saunier by the time the film was set for release. Gaël was eventually found guilty and sentenced to National Degradation, a lifetime suspension of her rights as a French citizen. The resulting backlash, as well as a ban to work for several years, effectively ended her film career. See more »
