Citing an article on George W. Bush «Armé pour menacer la paix du monde» (Armed and Threatening World Peace) from the January 31, 2002 issue of Le Monde, the lyrics of Un axe du mal are sung to the melody of the original Jermaine Jackson/Pia Zadora song And When the $$ Rain Begins to Fall. Producers Nathalia Bujold and Pascal Lièvre use language to express the unlikely meeting of this theo-geo-political text and romantic words. The two actors are filmed in front of the cliché honeymoon destination of Niagra Falls. There, they declare their love for one another with the same words President Bush used to declare war on terrorism.
