When the Phantom is on the rooftop after Christine and Raoul leave, You see the Phantom's cape blowing in the wind. If you look closely, you can actually see that there are two capes blowing in the wind, one under the other. This is due to the fact that the film editors added a digitally created cape to blow in the background, but for whatever reason, did not match its movements with the real cape the Phantom was wearing.

This is what I found myself saying when the end credits started rolling. I have seen the Stage Play 12 times. I have read the Book so may times I can not count it(LEaroux AND Kay's books). I will not put spoilers in here. All I'm going to say is go INTO it with an OPEN MIND. Some of the scenes are different from the Stage play. IT IS NOT a shot by shot remake. Bring Kleenex. Your going to need them. Butler plays Phantom with so much Intensity you CAN'T help but love him. I am NOT a fan of Minnie Driver by any means, but I have to say I liked her in this movie, she was even funny in it. As for Rossum she makes a good Christine. The costumes and the scenery were Beautiful. 2 days after seeing it, and I'm STIL IN AWE.
