The film is based on György Dragomán's multiple award winning novel, but the story has been transposed to fictitious near-future dictatorship. Dragomán said this about the film: "In my original novel I wanted to show freedom in a society where freedom should not exist. In their movie Alex and Jörg were brave enough to take my communist childhood tale and adapt it into a modern story, showing us that the threat to freedom is as eternal as our fight for it."
Greta Scacchi and Olivia Williams worked together previously on Jane Austen Regrets / Brideshead Revisited.
Olivia Williams has lent her voice to Sophia, one of the world's most advanced humanoid robots created by Hong Kong based Hanson Robotics, a company founded by Dr. David Hanson, who previous worked as a sculptor and technical consultant at Disney Imagineering.
Kis Ádám, a well-known actor worked on this film.
