Continuity mistake: When Kathy is sitting in the Behrani house, she picks up a photo frame, looks at it and sets it back down. After it has been set down it changes the angle it sits at instantly. (00:33:40)

Continuity mistake: When Behrani puts the plastic bag on his head, to suffocate himself, we see shots of him breathing heavily. In one shot the bag has become very condensed with his breath, yet when we see him take his final breath, the bag is perfectly clear. (01:52:55 - 01:53:50)

More quotes from House of Sand and Fog

Question: One of the mistakes for this film is "In the scene when Ben Kingsley is called a traitor by the woman, at the far right of some shots, you can see the right side (viewer's left) of a man moving slightly." - can anyone make this more specific. Who is calling Ben Kingsley a traitor? His wife, or Jennifer Connoley. Could anyone supply a timecode for this, as I'd like to see it.

Chosen answer: I believe the post is refering to when Ben Kingsley's wife is yelling at him after the cop first threatens them with deportation. But his wife calls him a coward, not a traitor, and there is no one in the scene except for the 3 family members (I've gone through the scene several times in slow motion).
