The maid was a Spanish speaker in the script, but as this was deemed controversial and Gary Fleder insisted it was important that she didn't speak English, the filmmakers spent two days arguing and trying to find a solution, first changing the character to a Russian before finally settling on an Italian.

When Sofia opens the door on Mrs Conrad (around 55th minute) and the latter says "Sofia" there's an error in the cut, a house exterior is shown for a few frames. See more »
Quite a decent thriller, with Michael Douglas, Sean Bean and Brittany Murphy. Thankfully, Sean keeps his english accent, as some other english actors try their hand at being american, which is fine, but not when you're so used to them.
That being said, it starts at the beginnng. Many thrillers have to build up, which at times you lose the thrill of the plot. Then, you're thrown into the present day, and start to understand the characters.
It has a few twists, but nothing that really jumped out. If you're after a decent thriller, have a go :)
