Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Synecdoche is pronounced: si-nek-duh-kee (with a stress on "nek").
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): In both instances where Caden is posting presents to Germany for Olive, the packages would never arrive - for one because there is no 'Kampfstrasse' in Berlin (though this would literally mean 'Fight Street', most likely a poetic choice made by the filmmakers). Also, the 4-digit postal code (D-1805) was never used for Berlin addresses. Before 5-digit codes were introduced in Germany in 1993, all of West-Berlin had the code 1000 (to be completed by a 2-digit number after the name of the city for the precise region), while the numbers beginning with 18 were reserved for the (until 1990) socialist Brandenburg.
  • Roger Ebert named this film the best of the 2000s.
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): Announcer on the radio at the very beginning says it's 22 September. The newspaper is dated in October, it's Christmas when the sinks smashes his forehead, New Year's on the ride home and March in the ophthalmologist's office. Kaufman afforded his film a dreamlike quality by playing with the representation of time throughout.
