The Guru picture The Guru mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Near the start, the man's mother puts a yellow dot on his head (just before he gets in the taxi), right in between his eyebrows. After the older woman has kissed him, it suddenly changes to being white and is suddenly a line which goes further up his forehead. And when she kisses him she doesn't touch it so the change can't be put down to her smudging it.

The Pianist picture

Continuity mistake: There is a scene where the Nazis are executing some fighters after destroying their stronghold, and they line them up facing a brick wall.

Nicholas Nickleby picture

Continuity mistake: At the very end when the Nicklebys are confronting their Uncle Ralph, at one point Ralph slumps down over his desk. He's off screen and you hear the thud of him falling, but the eyelines of the people on-screen don't change a bit; they continue looking slightly upward. You'd think if he was falling over they'd follow him down with their eyes and they'd move at least a little.
