When Alice Winocour was editing the film, her editor, Julien Lacheray, received a message saying, "Are you in the street? Go back home. There's a problem", and it was the Charlie Hebdo attack. Then it was amazing to Winocour when she was going out of the editing room, she was seeing military with guns in the street, she felt really that the nightmare had come for real. Winocour's little brother was in the Bataclan attack and he survived. It was also something really strange that her brother became like the character Vincent, suffering from PTSD himself.
