Noomi Rapace fractured her nose during filming when an elbow accidentally hit her face. She, however, didn't realize the extent of the injury until much later so, after a brief black out, she just got up and insisted on carrying on with the scene. As of April 2015, the fracture had yet to be mended and had healed up in a broken state (meaning it needs to be re-broken up again in order to fix). See more »

I watched this movie this week. Too bad, I couldn't watch it in its original version. Whatever. I liked the plot. In the trend. Hard, punishable an terribly sexy. I loved the character played by Rapace at least as much as I loved her playing. Though, I don't know why, I sensed from the very minute I saw Douglas playing that his character was going to betray or fool the lead. Panned out eventually. I was against all odds totally stunned by Bloom's character finally being a traitor himself. I loved it. Like a lone ranger. I loved the way the whole story was told, and how we us watchers were brought and swirled into it. However, I loathed the outcome with Douglas' Lego-like speech. It meant nothing to me. Like the story he told was not credible and certainly not believable. I gave absolutely no credit to his character even from the start -maybe had it been explained and sustained in additional minutes on a screen would I have come to get to appreciate him- and I was not warm nor cold that he died by Rapace's hand. The reference to Paris was OK. In my opinion, for being French, it's just perfectly -and a bit hypocritically- it's good that they did not will to show and reference to more detailed specifics there judging from our recent story. For what it's worth, I'd have liked the plot to be darker, harder. I had a good movie with perfect acting but I'd have enjoyed better depth and dark whatsoever.
