Klaus Badelt came onto the project at a late stage, and watched the film with Fred Cavayé to see where music was needed.

150 children auditioned for the role of Oscar. Fred Cavayé originally wanted a five-year old but found that it would be unmanageable with the two hours of daily legally allocated work time, and thus set his eyes on a younger-looking, shy six-year old. Newcomer Lancelot Roch was eventually chosen for his resemblance with Diane Kruger.

The idea for the film came from Guillaume Lemans. Once Fred Cavayé got involved, the two men started out by working on the film separately before sharing their ideas. Cavayé then wrote the first draft of the screenplay himself, and so on.
