    Resnais conceives the cutting, assures the preparation and the editing, but has to delegate the shooting to his former assistant André Heinrich.
    " Resnais suggests (except precise notes), brings people to do exactly what he wishes without imposing anything on them []. They said that The Mystery was the least good short film by Resnais. As far as the movie is a little of me, I am sure that it is my best short film. "
    André Heinrich, " The Avant-Scène cinema ", in July-September, 1966.
