Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • When Roman Polanski was arrested September 2009 in Switzerland, post-production was never put on hold. He saw every step of the film and made all artistic decisions. He finished editing the movie while in a Swiss prison. In December 2009 Polanski was released on bail but placed under house arrest, where he remained when this movie was released.
  • Some part of the movie was filmed on the German island of Sylt as a stand in for Martha's Vineyard. To look more American it was dressed up with an attention to details: American style cars, US signage, added telephone poles (phone and energy lines run mostly underground in Germany), wooden houses, American extras, etc.
  • Ewan McGregor has said that the script never named his character, so in his head, his character name was Gordon McFarquor. The credits simply list him as The Ghost.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): An intellectual man like Paul Emmett with a Cambridge doctorate degree should know better than to use the object form of "who" in a copular sentence - "And he is whom?"
