Simone

Other mistake: The fraudulent article, "Simone: The Lost Years", published in a major magazine called Echo, contains multiple text and layout mistakes. This is best seen by single-stepping through the frames of the DVD. This is not supposed to be a rough test to plan the page layout; this is a final copy of this major magazine, as published, being read by Viktor. There are about 12 mistakes in 4 paragraphs. (00:50:36)

Continuity mistake: When Viktor is talking to Simone, sipping his Jack Daniels he sets it down and the label is pointing away from him - the next shot the label is pointing towards him.

Viktor: A star is digitized. You know what this means? We have stepped into a new dimension. Our ability to manufacture fraud now exceeds our ability to protect it.

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?).
