Trivia: The motel/hotel in Paris, where Matt Damon and Franka Potente are spending some nights is called "Hôtel de la paix" ("Peace Hotel"). The right spot for a spy and his companion in deep trouble, isn't it? (01:04:44)

Trivia: This film highlights Franka Potente's trademark for having her hair dyed a lot in her films. In fact, she sometimes shaves her head after a film in order to let it grow back normally, as it gets dyed so often.

The Bourne Identity mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Jason is cutting Marie's hair in the hotel room, his watch is on his left wrist. When he and Marie begin to kiss, in this flipped shot Jason's watch is on his right wrist, his moles have changed sides, and the hand-held showerhead behind them is backwards as well. Next shot his watch is back on his left wrist. The flipped shot has nothing to do with the small bathroom mirror. (01:00:56)
