Edit
Trivia Peter von Bagh had planned this film for quite long time and when he heard that Jean-Luc Godard was making a film with similar title (Film socialisme (2010)), von Bagh first got worried that Godard would steal the subject with his film, but was then relieved when the full title was revealed.
