Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised

Factual errors 

Insp. Jacques Closeau and Chief Insp. Dreyfus mention several times that Bizu was shot in the occipital lobe. In the scene when Bizu was shot, he was facing the gunman, so he would have been shot in the forehead. The occipital lobe is in the back of the head, not in the forehead.

Since Clousau is in his apartment, its wiring must be part of the regular city electricity grid used for street lighting, so when the power goes off in his apartment, it should go out all over Paris, just as it does for the Eiffel Tower and all of the other lighted landmarks and major structures in the image, yet the regular city lights clearly stay on.
