Trivia

The car bringing the protagonist to the sanatorium in the beginning of the movie has a GR car plate, indicating that the location is in the Canton of Grison/Graubunden, which would fit the scenery. However, there is an extra letter in between the numbers. Swiss car plates have no extra letters other than the letters for the Canton. See more »
