Factual error: While debating when to begin the trek across the Andes with Nando, Roberto remarks that "winter will be over" soon. This incident took place in South America where the seasons are opposite from the northern hemisphere. The plane crashed in the spring and Nando and Roberto reached Chile by foot in the summer.
Trivia: The guy who first follows Parrada and Canessa on their expedition to find Chile is nicknamed Tintin. In one of the most famous Tintin albums the cartoon hero goes to the Himalayas to find a friend who is reported dead after a plane crash in the mountains. Most likely a coincidence, but still notable.
