Continuity mistake: When Daniel comes home on the evening of Yom HaKippurim, and his girlfriend wants to have a traditional meal, you can see by the light that it's sunset. Yet when right afterwards he's walking down the street, you can see that it's a much earlier time of the day.

Guy Danielson: People hate Jews, do you agree?
Daniel Balint: The very word makes their skin crawl. They undermine traditional life, and they deracinate society. Just take a look at the greatest Jewish minds ever. Marx, Freud, Einstein. What have they given us? Communism, infantile sexuality, and the atom bomb.
Guy Danielson: Danny, this is great. But how can you believe all of this... when you're a Jew yourself?
