Péter Gárdos' debut feature film.
Gárdos got the inspiration for the movie after he saw a 1930s picture of a magician who posted himself from New York to Philadelphia in an iced train wagon. Gárdos also considers E.L. Doctorow's novel 'Ragtime' as an inspiration.
21 actors, including János Kulka, Pál Mácsai, Zoltán Bezerédy and György Dörner were considered for the male lead, which eventually went to Károly Eperjes.
This movie inspired by a real story. In 1931 a stunt named Andrew Moro allowed himself to be frozen up in a solid cake of ice for thirty minutes in Portland, Oregon. He survived.
