Goofs

When Holger and Anita are standing outside the shop and looking at the "curious clock", their faces can clearly be seen reflected in the shop window. As they continue their parting conversation, Anita's mouth movement suddenly mismatches what she can be heard saying. This is followed by a mixture of audible dialogue and interspersed mouth movements from both characters that produce no sound. See more »
