Laurent Leguevaque was really a French judge who worked on the case which the movie is based on.
Share this
According to director Xavier Giannoli an important civil works enterprise first proposed its help for finding a location, then abandoned. The movie was saved at the last minute by a civil-work material renter who proposed its help, its material and its workers to build the 2-km long where most of the film takes place.

While Philippe Miller runs across the construction area after the siren goes off, he falls on the ground and gets his right sleeve covered in mud. In the next shot when he has resumed running, the sleeve is clean again.
