Did You Know?

Originally, Daniel and Juli were supposed to sing The Cure's "Friday I'm In Love", but the rights were too expensive. When the music supervisor was able to secure the rights for "Blue Moon" instead, the script was changed at the last minute to include a conversation on oldies.See more »
Factual errors: The movie starts with a total solar eclipse on July 7. Some hints (German Marks; the war in Yugoslavia) show that the story took place between 1991 and 2001. However, there were no solar eclipses on July 7 after 1880. The only total solar eclipse in 1991-2001 happened on July 11 1991 and was only visible in Western Hemisphere.See more »
Daniel Bannier:Ok, we'll play the old game. The first person to stop decides where we go, ok?
Juli:Want me to tell you something?
[Daniel nods]
Juli:I love you.
Daniel Bannier:What?
Juli:I love you.
Daniel Bannier:It's funny but I'm not sure I heard that right...
Juli:I love you.
Daniel Bannier:I said that it's difficult to understand you.

instant Faith Akin fan, 16 November 2004
Author: efini226 from seattle, usa

For someone to write, direct, and act successfully in a movie shows a great talent at work. Mr. Akin also shows great talent in finding wonderful actors. A terrific story for anyone who has dreamed about a journey about finding life. With gyspies, beautiful women, mind altering drugs, fellow travelers, traveling throughout countries, all to find what has been missing in life after thousands of miles was right in front of you all along. It also shows that though people may be different, we are all looking for the same thing, happiness. I can count on one hand the stories that have made me cry with joy, this being one of them. I can't wait to see more of Mr. Faith Akin's movies as I have become an instant fan with I'm July!
