Goofs

In the opening dialog between Nadja and the man at the bar, Nadja is initially wearing a scarf over her hair. At one point the camera cuts to the man's face and we see the back of Nadja's head, but now suddenly and inexplicably, the scarf has disappeared and remains absent for the rest of the scene.

My personal favorite movie of all time
12 July 2000 | by (Northampton, MA) – See all my reviews

It's a gorgeous film. Elina Lowensohn is amazing, Peter Fonda has to be seen to be believed--all the performances are excellent--and the dialogue is somehow equal parts profound and hilarious. It's profound in an almost but not quite tongue-in-cheek way that makes it cool rather than cheesy. And it's hilarious in a highly intelligent way rather than a wacky way. Every scene is a treat. The pixellated scenes are done with a toy Fisher Price camera and they look great. The music is powerful, moody, perfect. Smart, interesting, compelling, beautiful, cool--what more do you want? Genius!

I saw this in the theater and completely loved it from the first three seconds into it, and it never let me down after that. I'll admit I'm on the obsessive end of the spectrum with this film--I went back and saw it seven more times that week. I've been waiting for the DVD for three years and my prayers have recently been answered.
