Continuity mistake: When the bombing scene is shown the first time Maurice breaks through the railing of the landing between the first floor, where he and Sarah were, and the ground floor. When Sarah tells her story and the bombing scene is replayed, we see her running down one full flight with an intact railing. She keeps running down and then comes to the spot where Maurice is lying on the steps. That means the second time there is one flight too many. (00:55:45)NancyFelix
Continuity mistake: In the last scene of the movie, after Sarah's cremation, Parkis's boy Lance walks up to Maurice. Then he puts his hands in his pockets (we can't see the hands but it's clear from the way he moves his arms), but when the camera angle changes his arms are hanging down. (01:33:35)NancyFelix
Continuity mistake: When the bomb explodes next to Maurice's place he gets blown off the landing of the staircase. The way he 'takes off' he would have fallen on the ground, and there's no way that he would have landed as Sarah finds him, on the stairs and with his head pointing upwards. (00:46:10)NancyFelix
Maurice Bendrix: I'm jealous of this stocking.
Sarah Miles: Why?
Maurice Bendrix: Because it does what I can't. Kisses your whole leg. And I'm jealous of this button.
Sarah Miles: Poor, innocent button.
Maurice Bendrix: It's not innocent at all. It's with you all day. I'm not.
Sarah Miles: I suppose you're jealous of my shoes?
Maurice Bendrix: Yes.
Sarah Miles: Why?
Maurice Bendrix: Because they'll take you away from me.
