The film looks not only at the taking of Paris by French and American troops but at [[WeAreStrugglingTogether rivalries within the Resistance]]. Of the two main sections, the branch loyal to General CharlesDeGaulle was against an uprising while the branch linked to the communists, led by Henri Rol-Tanguy (Bruno Cremer), believed action was necessary. De Gaulle tried to overcome communist influence during and after Liberation, [[RedScare believing the communists planned to take control of the city and then of France]].

Added DiffLines:

* RefugeInAudacity: When "Pierrelot" (Jean-Paul Belmondo) is tasked to retake Hôtel Matignon from LesCollaborateurs, he cannot get any men in insurgent Paris. So what does he do? Walk into the place with just his female aid, and ask for control of the place in the name of the temporary government. It ''works'', and he's treated like a minister.

The title comes from AdolfHitler's question to his chief of staff Alfred Jodl on the eve of the liberation of Paris (August 25): "Brennt Paris?". The military governor of Paris, General Dietrich von Choltitz (Creator/GertFrobe), had been ordered to [[IfICantHaveYou destroy the city rather than let it fall undamaged into the hands of the Allies]].
