Continuity mistake: When Bess goes to the ship the first time one of the men cuts across the back of her blouse, starting from the right shoulder. In all later shots the cut starts at the left shoulder.
Other mistake: In the scene where Bess' body is thrown into the sea there's a shot of Jan's head injury. The area around the well healed scars is freshly shaven and shiny. Such a long time after the last surgery there would be at least some stubble.
Continuity mistake: When the paralyzed Jan tries to commit suicide he holds the pill jar between his left arm and the back of his right hand. When it cuts to a close-up he pushes his right knuckles against the jar.
Continuity mistake: When Bess' capability of getting married is being examined by the elders, the collar of her shawl is folded up and her shawl is wrapped around it. When she is sent out the collar is down and the shawl is wrapped around her neck.
Continuity mistake: When Bess waits at the phone booth for Jan's call Dodo comes by on a bike. She stops and pushes her hood back a little, but when the camera angle changes the hood is down all the way.
