Trivia Marianne Lane's concert scene was filmed in Milan, at the San Siro Stadium, which is like the Madison Square Garden of Milan. They shot the scene in front of 70,000 people during the show of Italian Rock star Lorenzo Jovanotti. Tilda Swinton has a mutual friend with Jovanotti, so they asked him if he could lend his crown for 15 minutes and the audience was asked to shout "Marianne Lane" before Jovanotti came out. See more »
Goofs Penelope tells everyone she is 22 years old and her passport shows a birth date in November 1993, which is consistent with her being 22 in 2015. Later, the police state that Penelope is actually only 17. However, no issue is raised about her having a fraudulent passport (which is a serious matter) and she is allowed to fly home seemingly without penalty. Not even a scolding. See more »
