Trivia

When asked about her full nude scene in the movie, Olivia Wilde said she isn't shy when it comes to naked scenes. She's stated that she has no issue taking off all her clothes in front of cast and crew. For the most part, Wilde has laughed off her naked scenes. Regarding a scene for her movie Third Person, Wilde said that "it's great now that [she's] had a baby 'cause I can look at it now and be like, Yep, that was once the way it was.'" Wilde discussed how filming in Italy made the attitude around the scene much more lighthearted because "they're way less conservative." The actress also joked that "not only did [she] have to [film] it again and again and again, but this was a scene in which [she] was running downstairs naked, which no one should ever do on camera."

Goofs

When Monika is in the American bar and is shown fiddling with her hair, from Brody's view of her, her (left) hand is below her chin; from behind her view to Brody shot, her hand is on her chin: plus soon afterwards flicking her hair back behind her neck (from Brody's viewpoint), when next to from behind her viewpoint shot, it still remains over her shoulder.

Paul Haggis did it again. At least for me he did. Obviously judging by the low rating, it hasn't had the same effect on others here. I really loved the movie, the intricacies, the connections and of course the "resolution". There might be a better word for the ending, but one thing is for sure: The movie demands more than one viewing. You can watch it with different eyes (your own, just a matter of speaking) and see things in a new light.

There's also trademark Haggis dialog, pointing in one direction, making fun of it, by almost straying away, than going full throttle on the first assumption you made. You may or may not like that, but it's what Haggis can do very good. And he has the actors to pull anything off, he gives them. It's a great movie with little hints here and there, that make sense in the end. Even if you don't get everything the first time around, it is a rewarding (viewing) experience
