Continuity mistake: When Jesse and Celine are walking along, there is a man in a red shirt who is just getting ready to pass them (with the camera shot looking from their backs). The scene shifts to a frontal shot, but the man in the red shirt does not pass immediately as he should have. There is too long of a time gap before he finally appears in the shot and passes Jesse and Celine.
