This film “Nous Nous sommes tant hais” (How we hated each other!) a love story between a French woman and German man, was set in the post-World War II period at a time when Jean Monnet, the architect of European integration was working with Robert Schuman to broker a deal to place the production of coal and steel under a common High Authority, as a first step towards elimination of the age-old rivalry of France and Germany, and create a de facto solidarity that will transform Europe. The story of the tumultuous origin of the European Coal and Steel Community (the predecessor of the EU) was told through the chance “reunion” of Marie and Jürgen, the two key characters in the film.
