On the subject of the darker more complex roles 'Robert de Niro' had at the time recently performed, de Niro said of his character and acting method on this movie: "It only appeared to be easier. You always have to worry. You always have to concentrate. It's just more deceptive when you are working on the surface". See more »
During several exterior Metro North run-by's, the film sequences are shown inverted. Trains coming towards the camera should run on the viewers left (as
trains and cars both drive on the right in the US) and the motorman's front window should be on the viewers left, as seen in the sequences shot in Grand Central Terminal. See more »
[talking to Isabelle about Frank]
No, I think about him every day. Last thought before I fall asleep and first thought when I wake up. I talk to myself all day about him, even when I'm talking to somebody else, even when I'm talking to you now I'm talking to myself about him. Brian thinks I'm ill, he thinks that it has to do with my father, he thinks the stress and, you know, all that... Thinks I'm having a breakdown, but I'm not, there's nothing wrong with me. Except that I love him.

Saw this movie for the first time, about 18 years ago. I must have been 14, 15 years old. I remember leaving the theater and telling this friend of mine, how in a way the movie was still 'with me'. The atmosphere, the feeling of it... We wanted to get back in and see the movie again right away!
For years, the score used as DeNiro runs to find Streep in time (subway station-final scene), kept playing through my head every time I ran to catch the subway train myself. So after almost 20 years, putting in the DVD and watching these scenes while listening to the music was an experience, just as the movie is by itself: pure magic.
