Dangerous Liaisons

Continuity mistake: When Valmont visits Madame de Tourvel and enters her room, there's a servant standing next to Valmont who appears to leave and you hear the door close. In the next scene he is still standing there with the door closed and then takes Valmont's hat, opens the door, and leaves.

Ben's Mom

Continuity mistake: At the end of the duel the Vicomte de Valmont falls where he is hit, next to the wall; Danceny and Azolan rush immediately to his side. During his subsequent repentance and death, he is not moved. In the final, overhead, shot of the scene there is a long trail of blood in the snow and Valmont is not near the wall. (01:49:30 - 01:52:30)

Continuity mistake: When Valmont is waving the letter behind his back, in the closeup the address is facing upwards, but in the wider shot we can see the wax seal is now visible.

Continuity mistake: When Valmont and Merteuil are at the party at the aunt's house, one of them takes a few steps away from the other while they're talking. In the next shot they're standing very close together.

Visible crew/equipment: Towards the end, as Vicomte de Valmont is demanding a simple yes or no, there's a shot of Marquise de Merteuil in front of a mirror, slowly panning back. Just after he says "yes or no," we see a shadow/silhouette in the mirror moving, but Valmont is standing perfectly still, and no one else is in the room.

Vicomte de Valmont: Why do you suppose we only feel compelled to chase the ones who run away?
Marquise de Merteuil: Immaturity?

Question: What are the nuns doing to Marie de Tourvel when she is sick? What possible benefit did they feel it would have?

ChiChi

Chosen answer: It looked to me like they were performing what is known as "cupping". "Cupping" is a branch of Chinese medicine where a cup (often heated, the so-called "fire cupping") is used to create a vacuum on certain areas of the skin, to simulate acupressure. It is said to relieve respiratory problems and muscular pains ad to stimulate the flow of life energy in the patient. How these French nuns came to know of and approve of the technique is another matter..
