Continuity mistake: When Michael comes back with a bunch of flowers, Hannah is ironing. One second she's ironing a girdle (I think it is), and the next second she's ironing a bra.


Continuity mistake: As Michael stands, naked, facing the bath, Hannah stands behind him, naked also and with a towel, to dry him; all through this, water has continued to fill the bath, but, miraculously, it turns itself off.


Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when Michael Berg is sick on the street in Neustadt and is leaning on a wall to throw up, he's near a closed door and is positioned to the right of that door. Next shot, from inside, shows the door now open and he is leaning to the left part of the door. (00:03:15)

Michael: I'm not frightened. I'm not frightened of anything. The more I suffer, the more I love. Danger will only increase my love. It will sharpen it, it will give it spice. I will be the only angel you need. You will leave life even more beautiful than you ended it. Heaven will take you back and look at you and say: Only one thing can make a soul complete and that thing is love.
