When Helena is learning to use chopsticks with Alex, the outdoor cafe they are at is an homage to the scene in Blade Runner, when Deckard(Ford) is having noodles. Raining, outside cafe, night, a lot of functional neon as lighting. The director even threw in a clear umbrella, reminiscent of those used in Blase Runner. See more »
When Álex is leaving the ship after they first met Helena walks up to him, her hair clearly falling over her shoulder. As Álex is talking to Helena the shots go back-and-forth between them and, without any movement at all (Helena's standing very still at this point) her hair suddenly disappears from her shoulder.

This movie takes it's time to tell the story. If you don't have patience you will get nothing out of it. I totally liked this flick because it drew me in. I don't mind a slow moving story if it can keep my interest. This movie has it's flaws, but overall it told a good story with a different perspective. Some people will be put off by subtitles, but that's not a problem for me. I would recommend this for someone who wants something different.
