  • The mournful tune that Mathilde plays on the tuba is "Aase's Death" from the Peer Gynt Suite by Edvard Grieg.
  • Years after starring in this film, Marion Cotillard, Audrey Tautou and Gaspard Ulliel, portrayed three of France's most iconic figures: Cotillard played Édith Piaf in La Vie en Rose (2007), Tautou played Coco Chanel in Coco Before Chanel (2009) and Ulliel played Yves Saint Laurent in Saint Laurent (2014).
  • Jean-Pierre Jeunet originally wanted to cast Dominique Pinon as Germain Pire the private eye and Ticky Holgado as uncle Sylvain. However, Holgado had been diagnosed with cancer and the studio refused to insure him. Therefore, Jeunet decided to switch the actors and did not regret his decision afterward. As Holgado became more and more ill, he began to have trouble concentrating and remembering his lines. Jeunet prepared a rough cut of the movie for Holgado to see, but Ticky passed on before he could do so.
