Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Paul goes to the Hotel Diplomat to get the scotch for the Rwandan general the bottles of Glenfiddich are rounded off. The rounded off style of bottles are a newer design, the ones in 1994 would have come to a point.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Colonel Oliver talks about the beginning of the negotiations, a photographer is seen in the front row shooting the speaker with a reflex lens. This kind of lens can not focus down to less than 3 meters as seen in the film and would be useless anyway because of an excessive magnification.
  • Nick Nolte's character (Col. Oliver) is modeled in part on Lt. Gen. Roméo Dallaire, the Canadian commanding officer of the UN Peacekeeping mission in that country who attempted to interfere with the Rwandan Genocide despite his superiors' indifference to the atrocity. Dallaire was also the subject of Sundance audience award documentary Shake Hands with the Devil: The Journey of Roméo Dallaire, and witnessed such horrible acts in Rwanda that he later suffered severe post-traumatic stress disorder. Despite these facts, this is the only fictional character (name and facts) depicted in the film.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): In the last chapter, When Tatiana Rusesabagina is looking for the pictures of her lost little nieces, we first see the pictures with two question marks under it. Five seconds later, the picture is blank.
