Factual error: The movie is set in Rwanda in 1994. At the start of the movie you see a billboard advert for MTN, a South African cellular service provider that was not available in Rwanda in 1994.

Continuity mistake: When Paul is talking to George after giving him the Cohiba cigar, at one point, he puts his hand to his face as the camera is facing him. When the shot cuts to George, Paul's hand is down, then immediately back up to his face when the shot cuts back to him.

Continuity mistake: In the scene towards the end of the movie, when the UN convoy arrives at the UN refugee camp, it is not raining. The next shot, in a close up of Paul assisting people off, it is raining. Then in the next shot it is back to not raining.

Factual error: When the mini bus drops off the priest at the hotel, you see a yellow triangular sticker on the side window. This is an ARMSTA sticker. This means the taxi belongs to the "Alexandra Randburg Midrand Taxi Association" in Johannesbug, South Africa. Yet the movie is set in Rwanda.

Trivia

In one scene Paul is listening to the radio and a broadcast of the debate about whether what was happening in Rwanda was considered genocide. During the conflict there was a news conference that was very similar to the one on the radio. One of the reasons that the US and UN would not label (or appear to label) the situation as genocide was that under legal obligations they would have had to act to prevent and punish the perpetrators if they said what was happening in Rwanda was genocide.
