The "hanging from the clock tower" stunt is a homage to Safety Last! (1923). At least three different takes were shot; two are shown during the course of the film, and a third at the end under the credits.
The U.S version distributed on video and DVD by Miramax's studio division "Dimension Films" in North America in 2000, it has a new opening credits sequence, a new score, and dubbed English dialogue. In addition, seven minutes are cut from the original dialogue (105 Mins) to 97 Mins.
