* ActorAllusion: To Creator/JacquesTati himself: The Illusionist's name is Tatischeff (Tati's full last name), and at a later part in the movie, Tatischeff stumbles into a [[spoiler:cinema showcasing ''Mon Oncle''.]]
** Tatischeff's body movements are incredibly reminiscent of Tati's in his roles as M. Hulot.

The movie was meant to be Jacques Tati's love letter to his daughter in 1956.

And Alice realises how naive she's been in thinking that Tatischeff could perform real magic. Not to mention the guilt of knowing that all of the expensive gifts ''didn't'' actually come from thin air.]]
