Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Eugene Hutz's band Gogol Bordello appears as the polka band that greets Elijah Wood at the train station.
  • Movie Goof (audio/visual unsynchronized): When the trio stops at the construction site, the subtitles say that the grandfather tells Alex to leave Jonathan in the car. However, in Russian, he actually says to take Jonathan with him.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): SPOILER: When Alexander closes his grandfather's eyes, you can see the actor playing the grandfather close them himself just before Alexander's hand passes over them.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): When Alex's grandfather asks Alex and Jonathan to leave, Jonathan immediately leaves, even though Alex has not translated the request into English. This, however, was most likely a creative choice to show the power and emotion of Alex's grandfather's words.
