Continuity mistake: The setting for the film is a village on top of a high hill; however, the slow running river which supposedly runs next to the village would not be there. Water courses always seek the lowest points which would be in the valley away from the village. You can see from the opening aerial view that the river would have to be far from the hill. (00:03:50)

Continuity mistake: In one scene, Alfred Molina's character forgets he should have a French accent and speaks to the minister, who is gardening, with his best London accent for the whole scene. It's very obvious - the whole cinema started laughing. (01:05:00)
