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.
