Simone

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is sitting at the computer system in the studio warehouse, sipping Jack Daniels and talking to the s1m0ne simulation on the computer screen, he begins to talk about "actors getting digital work done to themselves, it being a grey area, etc." - during this part, there is a pen, which jumps from the desk to Viktor's hand to the desk, instantly through subsequent shots.

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is sitting at his home computer as he first operates the s1m0ne programme, the items on the desk beside him (parcel paper, wiring, etc.) continue to shuffle positions between shots. Also during the same shots Viktor's hands continue to instantly jump from either in his lap, or to clutching the side of the desk. (00:14:15)

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is in the studio warehouse, operating the s1m0ne programme on the computer inside, as he first comes into the warehouse to sit at the desk he throws down a large black file on the edge of the table. As the scene continues, in some shots the file is positioned at an angle and in other shots it is positioned perfectly straight. (00:21:20)

Factual error: In the scene of the concert, Simone is a hologram but the microphone is real, as it is set up in the previous scene with Viktor and crew going over details, but one shot shows Simone holding and singing into the microphone, which is impossible for a hologram to pick up. (01:03:40)

Trivia: References to "Pygmalion" - both the Greek myth and the G.B. Shaw play which became "My Fair Lady" - occur in "Simone." There is a brief shot of a famous painting of Pygmalion and his "creation" Galatea. The inventor of the "Simone" computer program is named Hank - a nickname for Henry (Higgins?). And Viktor chooses Audrey Hepburn as the "voice" for Simone. Ms. Hepburn appeared as Eliza Doolittle in the film "My Fair Lady."
