Continuity mistake: Patrizia says the kinda dumb line about being bored by reading. Adam Driver looks a little on the dejected side, holding two books in hand. At the cut when she asks him what are those books about, the books are tilted in the opposite direction. (00:09:20)

Continuity mistake: Patrizia is having lunch with her future father-in-law at the historic Terrazza Gallia restaurant in Milan. She jumps nervously when he first addresses her; during this transition, the waiter who just tilted the bottle up is still pouring with the bottle tilted down in the second shot, and a waiter that was taking care of the table behind Lady Gaga disappears. (00:15:15)

Continuity mistake: Rodolfo during lunch tells the story of how young Maurizio who brought a moment of levity to his wife's funeral. When the camera is behind Jeremy Irons' head, the cigarette smoke signals that the hand out of frame is raised. In the shot from the side of the table, the cigarette is on the table, and you can see the smoke disperse before it reaches the level of the other shots. (00:17:10)

Continuity mistake: Look at the level of the wine in Maurizio and Patrizia's glasses when Rodolfo during their lunch date mentions the saddest moment of his life. The glasses are fuller when Patrizia takes his hand a few seconds later. (00:17:15)

Continuity mistake: When Rodolfo tells his son to do whatever with Patrizia but "No, not marry", the handkerchief disappears from his hand in the reverse shot. (00:20:05)

Continuity mistake: The wedding scene has a POV from Patrizia's perspective as she walks down the aisle. She passes by a cute girl with braids, goes well past her, but in the reverse angle that follows she is in front of her still and says hi. (00:26:20)

Continuity mistake: When Aldo invites Maurizio to play a heated game of calcio fiorentino at the villa, the people lounging in the background change position between shots. (00:34:20)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Aldo after the birthday toast tells Patrizia that the Gucci were saddle-makers. His son in the wide angle claps his hands together, nothing in them. Closer angle, and he conjured smokes and a lighter. (00:35:25)

Continuity mistake: When Paolo shrugs at his father sniping at his fashion taste saying "Ehh, it's chic", his arm is lowered in one shot, up in the next. (00:36:00)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Paolo is lamenting his father's lack of trust in his 'brilliant ideas'. There's a shot on a befuddled Lady Gaga staring in space while Paolo in his farcical accent says "because-ah." Jared Leto's arm is in frame, and it's immoble. The shot was edited in from a different take of a different part of the scene, because at that point Paolo is supposed to be gesticulating like a buffoon. (00:36:50)

Continuity mistake: When Patrizia calls the fortune-teller, the ice cream cups change position on the table between shots (when she says ""Will I get what I want?"). (00:40:50)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Patrizia is trying on some shoes inside the store in Via Condotti after Sophia Loren left. Al Pacino checks her out from behind, and you can see that there's nothing directly in front of the stool, but in close-up there's a pair of red heels. (00:42:00)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Pacino introduces the country workers to "My nephew Maurizio" his sunglasses suddenly jump from his head to his hand. Adam Driver in this second shot affectionately touches his wife's back, and the gesture is repeated in the next angle change. (00:44:20)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Aldo is having lunch with Maurizio and Patrizia at the country house. He says "I love this place", cigar in hand. Puts the hand down, but the hand is up in the following shot. (00:45:05)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Rodolfo verbally eviscerates Paolo who presented him his sketches. Then he adds "Oh no, forgive me." As he does that, his eyeglasses switch hands. (00:55:50)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Maurizio discusses Rodolfo's inheritance and the taxes to pay, look at the objects in front of Patrizia; they go from the side of the book, to the top of it. (01:01:45)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the scene when Patrizia finds her maid's counterfeit Gucci, she puts her shopping bags on the kitchen counter. They are all roughly parallel, but when she questions Ira, the Burberry shopping bag is perpendicular to the others. (01:05:20)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Backstage of the Versace show. The young designer asks Maurizio what's his name as he sips some champagne. He holds the flute glass in a different way between shots. (01:09:20)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Patrizia is told by Domenico "You have a natural advantage, you are not a Gucci", her hands are down and separated, and then immediately in the next shot up and joined. (01:11:35)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Maurizio corrects Patrizia saying the restaurant was at the second floor of the Tour Eiffel, Lady Gaga goes from both hands joined to one hand up in the air in the middle of a gesture. An even more blatant instance later when he lambasts her saying they wouldn't tell her if they did mind her gab. (01:36:05)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When Aldo and Rodolfo first meet, the hat on the table swaps between being on the sunny side or in the shadows, depending on the shot.

Patrizia Reggiani: It was a name that sounded so sweet... Synonymous with wealth, style, power. But that name was a curse, too.
