Trivia

One of the scenes was written to include a wide shot with rain falling over the town, but the day of the shooting the weather was too clear. The director had almost resigned herself to use close-ups and simulate rain by pouring water through perforated PVC pipes, but suddenly it started getting cloudy. Happily, the wide shot could be filmed with natural rain. See more »
