Interesting facts about the film:
- One of the main characters in the film is inspired by the iconic French actress of this period, Pascal Ogier. She was a style icon of the 80s, the lover of director Jim Jarmusch and the performer of iconic roles in the films of Eric Rohmer and Jacques Rivette. She is best known for her role as Louise in Rohmer’s Full Moon Nights, for which Ogier won the Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival. Ogier chose the costumes herself and designed the heroine’s hairstyle with hair whipped up, which became fashionable after the film’s release. The actress became a style icon for the youth of the 80s – the so-called “new” generation.
