Trivia

The film used actual soldiers from the U.S., Great Britain, and the Soviet Union as extras and bit parts. After initially giving his permission, the Soviets' Commander rescinded it. John Schlesinger was in contact with a subordinate, and they secretly assembled some troops in a hidden location, where the director sent a bus to pick them up! See more »

Goofs

About two-thirds into the film, an unconscious man is discovered lying fully clothed on a bed. The first shot of the man shows only his left hand, palm down, near the left side of the bed. This implies that he is lying on his back. But moments later, in a wider shot, the man is shown lying face down. See more »

John Schlesinger is innocent.
2 February 2005 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

There was here a phenomenal film but something got into its system and destroyed it. Not completely, whoever perpetrated the crime wasn't talented enough to go all the way and some beautiful pieces of evidence, showing the masterful hand of John Schlesinger, survived the massacre. The atmosphere of the first hour for starters. Isabella Rosellini's performance. Her best. Campbell Scott an actor incapable of being boring, not even when he plays bores. Trevor Howard before him was a master at that. The truth is that the reviews had been so bad that the only two reason I actually bough a ticket were 1. John Schlesinger, even a bad Schlesinger is bound to be better than a Ron Howard. 2.Hart Bochner, yep, after "Apartment Zero" I was desperate to see him again, in anything. Well he was hardly in it, at least not on this, obviously, mutilated, butchered version I saw. I did spend quite a few bucks in therapy to have my therapist say that my obsession with "Apartment Zero" was quite harmless, as a matter of fact he admitted to have seen the film three times but that he preferred Colin Firth in it. Fair enough. No, according to him my real problem was a huge monstrous woman. I must confess it disturbed me a little bit. But that night I had a dream. I dreamt that the film had been taken away from John Schlesinger by a huge monstrous woman. Go figure.
