Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The play performed in the movie is an adaptation of "Bluebeard", which is a French fairy tale recorded by Charles Perrault about a man who marries, kills his wives after they fail a test, stashes their bodies in a small chamber, then marries again. In the original story, the main character (Bluebeard's current wife) escapes her psychopathic husband and finds happiness elsewhere.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: When Ada is pulled out of the water in the slow motion scene near the end of the movie, you can see that she still has her finger. It's wrapped in bandages, but clearly there.
  • Before deciding on Holly Hunter, Jane Campion met with several actresses in England, France and the US for the role of Ada. Among the actresses she considered were Sigourney Weaver, Anjelica Huston, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Isabelle Huppert, Juliette Binoche and Madeleine Stowe.
  • Holly Hunter played most of the piano sequences herself.
