An account of underground resistance fighters in Nazi-occupied France.
During the shooting of this film, Lino Ventura and the director Jean-Pierre Melville did not speak to each other. They only communicated through assistants.
See you later, Comrade.
Legrain: ...You're a communist?
Philippe Gerbier: No. But I can still have comrades.
When Gerbier is being taken to the concentration camp at the beginning of the film, and the guard driving the police van makes an unexpected stop at the house, it is clear that the rain is only falling in front of the camera and directly on the van. Only a few feet away, there are no raindrops hitting the mud or the puddles of water.
