More Movie Taglines:
- Where happily ever after is just a dream.
- Some people follow their dreams. Others steal them.
- Clone: C'est moi l'original! C'est moi!
Miette: What are you doing? One: Radiator.
[after Mlle. Bismuth has been harpooned] Clone: Does it hurt? Mlle. Bismuth: Yes, I'm allergic to steel.
Krank: Quiet! You vegetable!
One: Miette too little. Miette: Not as little as all that.
- To achieve the slightly skewed color scheme of the movie, the actors were made up in white face and the color palette corrected until they were flesh-toned.
The Octopus are conjoined twins joined at the leg, but the actresses who played them are not. A prosthetic third leg was designed and fitted to the actresses, but they could not walk while wearing it. This is why the Octopus sisters do not walk in any shot of their whole body.
During filming, Ron Perlman was bitten by the dog with the pulley and Judith Vittet was bitten by the mouse with the magnet.
Ron Perlman doesn't speak French and was the only American on set. But he learned all of his lines, and delivered them without error.
Translated into a Computer Video Game by Psygnosis, with co-director Marc Caro overseeing the production and art design.
