Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • 17 days before shooting was to commence in Morocco, none of the characters had been cast. The production crew made an announcement in the nearest town via television and radio and in the mosques that actors were needed. Within the next 24 hours, over 200 people showed up hoping to participate. Almost all of them are in the final cut of the film, both as principal characters and as extras.
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): After Chieko takes her panties off she walks back up to the table with her friends. In this shot you can see the reflection of the steadicam arm, operator and an assistant in the mirror in the top left area of the screen.
  • Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett were originally slated to appear as a couple in 2002 in Darren Aronofsky's film The Fountain. However, after creative differences with Aronofsky, Pitt dropped out to appear in Troy and the film was shut down. Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz were later cast instead.
  • The scene where Chieko (Rinko Kikuchi) and her father are in the car together was shot without filming permission from the city due to slow Japanese bureaucratic procedures. The crew created "man-made" busy traffic, and began shooting the scene. Later the police started chasing them while still shooting the scene.
