Contrary to popular belief, McBurney's heritage was not changed to suit Colin Farrell's natural accent. The character is Irish in the book. Farrell was not initially going to use his Dublin accent but pushed to have the movie accurate to the original story. See more »
The scene where Nicole.K. walks down the steps to answer the door holding a revolver in her left hand, then suddenly before she gets to the door the revolver is in her right hand. See more »
I have to think that the reason for the almost all star cast is because they are doing favors for the director/producer. This movie had so much potential, but the acting (by everyone) was forced and so much more could have been done with the plot. The potential here was wasted. Just like her other movie (the Paris one) this movie just dragged on and on - to get to the very weak action at the ending.
