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)

Other mistake: When the priest is singing to himself in the garden, you can hear a person off camera say "go" just before the mayor enters.
