Other mistake: In the last scene at the airport, extras get reused - for instance, when she says "I promise..." a guy with a loud teal T-shirt, dragging a little trolley, walks by her. The commissioner offers to give her a ride, and the same guy is walking in the opposite direction. (01:20:50)

Continuity mistake: When the commissioner - who somehow delivers adoption papers too - hands the documents to Chin's cousin, she holds them in her left hand, which is entirely free in the next shot. (01:20:15)

Continuity mistake: Diana and Chin are chained up in the back of the van. She begs him to leave the child alone; the position of her hands changes entirely between shots. (01:13:20)

Revealing mistake: Diana needs to make herself a new DIY cane. She tried to break a few branches, and one eventually makes a snapping sound - you can see though that it just slips into her hand coming from out of the frame. (01:08:00)

Continuity mistake: At the double murder scene, the commissioner asks the eyewitness about the van. In the background, a policeman opens the trunk of the car, fully. He is back in the process of opening it in the next shot. (00:44:15)

Audio problem: When Baldacci shoots the van that is coming at him full force, the sound bits inserted are of bullets hitting metal. Since he is aiming at the windshield, either his gun does not shoot straight or someone has been very lazy with the sound editing; even if he hit bulletproof glass, the sound it would make would not be like that at all. And a few seconds later his colleague shoots at the van from the side and there is no bullet impact sound at all; to Miss a static target of THAT size from a few feet of distance she'd have to blind as well.

Revealing mistake: When inspector Gerry Baldacci gets in the way of the white van (as if there were a single white van in all of Italy), you can see on the asphalt the single distinct tire marks of the perfect size and path from previous takes. (00:43:00)

Continuity mistake: The police inspector threatens Diana implying that for a blind woman like she is, life in prison would be a nightmare. He does that casually leaning against the wall with his hand held up high above his head. In the reverse shot, his hand is chest-high. (00:38:15)

Continuity mistake: The police shows up at Diana's door looking for the kid. As Diana opens the door, look at her left hand getting on the top of her cane. And yet, in the reverse shot the right hand is there, the left arm is down her side. (00:37:40)

Continuity mistake: Diana's fingers are in a different position on the phone between close-up and wider angle when she realises that Chin crept back in the kitchen as she was trying to speak with the headmistress. (00:32:30)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: When the kid is eating cereals in Diana's kitchen, the glass is touching the tablecloth in the first close-up, and it is not in the wider camera angle. (00:31:35)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Diana gives her business card to the nun, who puts it under a register on a table. That spot is under direct sunlight in the wider angle, in the shade in the close-ups. (00:29:35)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Rita and Diana are sitting on a park bench. Diana is alarmed by the presence of a white van. She uses her white cane to stand; her hand is on very top of the cane in one shot, and lower in others. (00:25:45)

Revealing mistake: After the accident, some bystanders rush to the car hit by Diana's. A woman leans against the car window spotting a child inside; you can see on the window very conspicuous handprints in that spot from previous takes. (00:17:10)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Towards the beginning of the movie, Diana is chased by the killer in a white van. They are inside an underpass, but there's a rear mirror view that shows a bus stop and trees. (00:16:05)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: Diana is meeting a client who is really into fisting, and does not take nicely her refusal to be on the receiving end of his knuckles. As he shoves her to the floor, her hands are plainly on sight, and they hold nothing, but conveniently when she is on the floor in the next shot she is holding the mace spray can. (00:14:15)

Sammo Premium member

Continuity mistake: The protagonist is puzzled by the sight of many people looking at the sky. When she decides to pull over and figure out the reason, the kids that were playing soccer in the lawn have changed position between shots. A much bigger inconsistency happens a minute later, when the eclipse obscures the sky (with a rather lo-tech effect that borders on being a revealing mistake itself), the kids have stopped playing ball, but in a longshot they are still shown playing. (00:03:00 - 00:04:15)

Revealing mistake: Ispettore Baldacci gets hit by the evil van, and you can see as he flies back from the impact that his face is clean, but in close-up of course all of a sudden his face is a crimson mask. (00:43:05)
