| Drama, War
France under occupation by the Germans during WW2: Two men inspired by a free France radio broadcast perpetrate an act of sabotage with unwitting consequences for them and their fellow villagers.
The German clown in the film is based on Bernhard Wicki. The memoir entitled "In Our Strange Gardens", on which this film is based, is dedicated to him.
Jacques Villeret and André Dussollier are, at the beginning of the film, throwing bottles of Riesling they just bought on a Nazi train. When the bottles break on the train, we can see red liquid splashing. Riesling is white wine.
