QUOTES Denis Dercourt | Director When did you discover these fans of Napoleonic historical reconstructions, who provided the inspiration for Tomorrow at Dawn? A long time ago, when I watched a documentary and found it rather cinematic. I had also read that in Napoleon’s army, musicians were known as «Far from the bullets» because they were kept away from the frontline. Putting these two pieces of information together, I thought: Here we have a subject for a film.
