But even alienate Helen for her salvation Gilbert purely a human could. She had to let him go myself. In short, the finale of the movie I totally invented. Incidentally, in a shoot in Paris, Helen was featured on my initiative. 16 series blow off the nerves of the Gestapo, the protagonist, the audience, at last, and nothing to do - this is just silly. Favorite female protagonist can not be only a function. My arguments seem convincing authors of the script, new scenes were invented specifically for my heroine. "
