Trivia

In an interview for French media Konbini in March 2019, Mathieu Amalric revealed that his character was inspired by the one played by Louis Jouvet in the Henri-Georges Clouzot movie Quai des Orfèvres (1947). Therefore, Writer, Producer, and Director Wes Anderson asked him to watch the movie again as preparation for the part. See more »
