Although not its official title, the series is sometimes referred to as L'amour avec un grand A (Love With a Capital "L") due to the fact that the series' DVD set released in 2005, featuring ten episodes, had that title on the box.[3] It is also the title of the series' theme song, sung by Ginette Reno.[4]
