Trivia

When escaping from the Vojnovic house into a dark night, Ruth descends the Male Stube stairs to Kozarska Street, then runs to Ratkajev prolaz, where she's almost caught by the Gestapo car. While Ivo is returning home, in the attempt to find her, we can hear the church bells ring, and behind him we see the church of St. Martin's on Vlaska Street, Zagreb. See more »

Goofs

The snow covering the courtyard is apparently not real snow. It is so dry and powdery, that Ruth does not seem to leave any steps in it. Also, when Ruth grabs it to make a snowball, it disintegrates instantly, although in the next shot, we see Ivo catching it. See more »
