Before Sunset
Before Sunset mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Celine is opening her apartment door. The door-handle is on the left side. When they walk in and close the door, the door-handle inside is again on the left side.

Continuity mistake: When Jesse and Celine are walking along, there is a man in a red shirt who is just getting ready to pass them (with the camera shot looking from their backs). The scene shifts to a frontal shot, but the man in the red shirt does not pass immediately as he should have. There is too long of a time gap before he finally appears in the shot and passes Jesse and Celine.

Factual error: Celine and Jesse are walking from Shakespeare & Company on the left bank of Seine to the Pure Cafe on the right bank, but they never cross a bridge.

Continuity mistake: While in the Cafe, behind Jesse there is a woman who receives a rose. The rose disappears and reappears in different places between shots.

Visible crew/equipment: At Celine's apartment, just as she's dancing and telling Jesse that he's going to miss his plane, a boom mic can be seen at the top right of the shot.

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the cafe, behind Celine there is a man smoking. In one shot he puts out his cigarette, but then from shot to shot he is shown smoking and not smoking several times.

Visible crew/equipment: While walking to the cafe, once they turn the first close corner you can see the boom microphone at the top of the shot for half a second.

Continuity mistake: When Celine and Jesse are walking from Shakespeare & Company, the same passers-by appear in every single scene.

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, Jesse is in a book store during a Q & A sessions with a bunch of readers. In front of him on the table are some books and glasses. The position of the books change between close-up shots of him and further away ones showing the fans.

Continuity mistake: While the couple is walking there is a shot from behind which shows them entering a tunnel, in the end of the tunnel there is a grey car parked, once they pass the tunnel you can see by the reflections that the car is gone.

Continuity mistake: Jesse and Celine are sitting on a park bench, and he has his right arm behind Celine on top of the bench. The next shot is a front view and his arm is resting on his leg.

Continuity mistake: When they are in the van, the background car keep changing from a blue one to a grey one, returning to the blue one in a matter of seconds.

While the film was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, it is not actually adapted from an existing work. The Academy rulebook defines any sequels as "adaptations," since they are based off of the original film.
