- THE WIDOW OF ST. PIERRE was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film.
- Director Patrice Leconte chose Emir Kusturica to star in his film when he saw his photo, not realizing at first that Kusturica was a successful director who had never acted before. Kusturica said that his performance in THE WIDOW OF ST. PIERRE will be his one and only acting job, but he soon changed his mind and decided to appear in HERMANO.
