Trivia

The exterior of the building where the Vojnovic' family lives is that of 30 Radiceva Street in Zagreb. Their apartment's balcony is overlooking the building's inner courtyard. 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 »
