Continuity mistake: Before church services, when the Baroness and her daughters step out of the carriage they are met by the Royal Page, who has the hidden pendant. In shots facing the Baroness, he is holding his bag in his arm with its cord dangling, but in shots facing him that bag's cord is slung over his shoulder. (00:59:20)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: When Auguste dies, the Baroness cries, "No!" and puts her right hand up to her mouth, then uses both hands to shake him as she pleads, "You cannot leave me here!" Next shot her hand is back up to her mouth, but when it cuts again she is still shaking him as she pleads, "You cannot leave me here!" (00:10:50)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Danielle is given a lashing on her back which results in many scars, some of which are level with her shoulder blades (scapula). The next day, when she appears at the masque in the low-backed gown, what we see of her back is completely scarless, though they cannot have already healed.
Visible crew/equipment: Near the end, when Rodmilla and her daughters are requested to appear before King Francis, in the first shot facing the king and queen, there is a beige narrow mat in front of the large patterned rug, which is not in previous or following shots, specifically used for crew/camera tracking.

Trivia: After Rodmilla and her daughters leave for the masque, during the next scene at the royal palace a large sculpture can be seen in the courtyard, especially in some closeups from different angles, such as when Gustave approaches Leonardo. This mythologically themed sculpture consists of a tailed figure riding upon one of two creatures holding their reins, with a ship behind them. This sculpture can be seen during the very first scene, albeit with a few changes. When Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm walk into the Grande Dame's chamber she is sitting up in an unusual type of bed. Note the bed's "headboard" and "footboard" are the ship hull (in the fullscreen version the bed's side is visible with its distinctive design), and we also see the creatures (minus their horns) with the rider's arm holding their reins at the foot of the bed. Something else to notice near the end, when Leonardo gifts the young couple the belated wedding present the room they're all in is not in the royal palace, they are in the manor, gathered in the dining room where Marguerite had burned Danielle's book Utopia.Super Grover
