Lost in Translation

Deliberate mistake: In the scene where Bob and Charlotte first glance at each other in the elevator, the film has been reversed.3 mistakes are visible. The first one is that the woman's Kimono is reversed, left side tucked into the right. All Japanese garments are always tucked in right side first. Only on the day of your funeral is the left side tucked in first. The second mistake is the lapel hole on Bob's jacket; it is shown on his right. The lapel hole is almost always on the left side of a men's suit or sport jacket. And in every other scene in the film, his lapel hole is on his left. The third is the birthmark by the ear and the 1 inch vertical scar on Bill Murray's cheek are shown on his right side. When in actuality, they are on the left side of his face.
