Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Francis Ford Coppola was attracted to Argentina as a location to set the film/story: "I knew Argentina has a great cultural/artistic/literary/musical/cinema tradition, and I like those kinds of atmospheres very much because you usually find creative people to work with."
  • According to Francis Ford Coppola, the film was shot on widescreen to evoke the films of Akira Kurosawa.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): It takes Tetro and Benjamin 1 day to travel from La Boca, Buenos Aires, to Al Calafate for the Patagonia Festival. The actual distance is 2,900km and would require (according to Google Maps) around 35 hours of continuous driving on less than perfect Argentine country roads. Futhermore, before entering Al Calafate they visit Perito Moreno Glacier which is another 70 kilometers away.
  • To attain the film's visual style, director Francis Ford Coppola and cinematographer Mihai Malaimare Jr. watched La notte (1961), Baby Doll and On the Waterfront; films Coppola had admired during his student years.
