Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Barbara Sukowa was attached to this project at one stage.
  • Helena Bonham Carter was originally cast in the role of Bess.
  • In modern film editing, the original film footage is transferred to video where it is edited to its final cut, then used as a guide for a negative cutter going back to the original film footage. In the case of this film, however, they just recorded the video edit back to 35mm, resulting in its unique, highly grainy look.
  • The person being buried is called Anthony Dod Mantle. This is a reference to Lars von Trier's favorite cinematographer - Anthony Dod Mantle - who served as a location scout in the movie.
