Corrected entry: General Karpov blackmails Professor Krilov into revealing the details of the plot by threatening to expose his son's homosexuality, which he says will result in his deportation to a prison camp. In fact as a highly placed Acadamecian like Krilov would surely know, homosexuality was not illegal in the USSR - it was legalised in 1922. Though officially frowned upon nowadays (though it is still legal) in the years the film was set there would have been no action taken against Krilov's son simply because he was gay.
Continuity mistake: When the troops are closing in around the house, Pierce Brosnan is listening to Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony. At one point the music is reaching the end, then it cuts to a shot of a soldier moving in closer, and when it cuts back the piece is finishing - however, the difference in time between the last bit we heard and the end isn't long enough for it really to have finished.
