That would be amazing." It then cuts to a different angle, where Dani suddenly has food on the fork and the bowl is raised again. (Director's Cut). (00:47:25)

Continuity mistake: At the party, when talking about the trip to Sweden, just after Mark says Pelle's invited them to an authentic hippie midsummer at his yodelling farm, it cuts to Dani asking "Oh, yeah." To the right of shot, Mark is shown holding a bottle with part of the label slightly uncovered, while the rest is covered by his hand. Two shots after, in a shot of the whole group, Mark's hand is now entirely covering the label. (00:14:20)

Casual Person

Other mistake: When Dani is looking at the email her sister sent her, there are three replies from Dani shown below it. The first email is listed as being sent 1 hour ago, the second was sent 42 minutes ago and the third was sent 19 minutes ago. Dani then goes on her phone and the time shown on it is 10:17PM. Later in the scene, she starts writing a fourth email to her, and the second and third email are still shown as being sent 42 minutes ago and 19 minutes ago. She then receives a call from an unknown caller and the time shown on her phone is 10:48PM, but the amount of time shown from how long ago the emails were sent hasn't changed. (00:02:55 - 00:07:05)

Casual Person

Other mistake: When Dani is on her phone after trying to contact her parents, the phone is shown on the Recents page listing the most recent calls she has made. The most recent call listed is Home, where she just called and left a message. Then it is followed by Terri, then Mom, then Christian, then Dad. Each of the calls are shown to have been made 1 minute ago. The message she left after calling the house phone lasted about 45 seconds. Then after the call, she looked back at her email for a few moments before going back to her phone. No way could four additional calls have been made all within the span of one minute and still leave a message on the house phone. (00:03:15)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Josh asks Pelle if he's not talking about an actual Attestupan before going to bed, Christian looks over to him asking him if he knows what it is.

Continuity mistake: When Pelle tells everyone tomorrow will be the first of the ceremonies, Christian asks "what's that" after Pelle tells them it will be Attestupan.

Continuity mistake: When Pelle gets his phone to show Dani photos of his commune, Dani stands up from the chair she is sitting on with both her hands at her side. The camera changes to a different angle where she moves over to Pelle's couch and both her hands are more closed together. (00:23:15)

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Christian is at the cafe with his friends, just after the waitress takes the tip and Pelle tells him "don't forget about all the Swedish women you can impregnate in June", Christian raises his hands in the air.

Trivia: During the feast in which Christian finds a pubic hair inside of his food, look closely at the drinks on the table. While the camera never calls direct attention to this, if you look closely, Christian's drink is very slightly darker than everyone else's. Earlier in the film, the camera briefly passes over a mural that depicts a woman collecting menstrual blood in a cup. (Along with the image of a woman cutting off pubic hairs, like the one Christian found in his food.) It seems Christian's drink has been laced with something he didn't expect.
