The World is Not Enough

Other mistake: The security monitor in Valentin's office shows a cinematic wide shot of the casino with the camera moving. It seems unlikely that a CCTV camera would be mounted to a crane to perform elegant moves like this. (00:43:55)

Other mistake: When Bond is about to jump from the banker's window, he is shown tying a knot on the strap, but when he gets to the street, he only releases the strap and walks away.

Suggested correction: He may have tied a quick release not, which by sliding his hand back up would have released the cable.

Bond does not tie a quick release knot. He ties a traditional overhand knot (it's shown in quite some detail), which cannot be easily removed. Therefore the original entry still stands.

Trivia: In the opening sequence with the speed boat jetting through the boat house and over the road was filmed in Wapping, East London. It took a week to film that one sequence as I saw them doing it. Also, for the matter of continuity, when the boat goes across the road, it goes into some sort of alley with an arch above it; in reality it's actually a Group 4 building on the other side of that road.

Question: Why does that woman commit suicide at the beginning? Who is it she is scared of and why?

Answer: She's afraid of Renard. She's apparently of the opinion that, if she allowed herself to be captured, that he would still be able to get to her regardless and would undoubtedly be deeply unhappy that she had allowed herself to be caught. She apparently feels that suicide is a preferable option to whatever he might do to her.
