Trivia At the very beginning of the movie Mads Brøgger is dressing up for the part. On his left hand he is seen wearing a replica of the "Good mark" ring normally worn by the comic book Character "The Phantom". This ring can permanently mark whomever it touches. The ring features four overlapping sabres forming a cross known as "The Good Mark". Those touched by it are under The Phantom's protection and the mark itself is said to give the wearer amazing luck. Whether Mads Brøgger actually met The Phantom during his stay in the Central African Republic is not known at this point, but having in mind that The Phantom usually takes care of criminal activities in the fictional African country Bengalla and is indeed a great friend of the pygmees it is highly likely that he would take immediate action.
