The Ninth Gate

Factual error: Throughout the film, the supposed rare book experts smoke over and around the books and always handle the books with their bare hands, instead of cotton gloves. Either one of these could destroy the extemely rare books.

Suggested correction: This isn't a factual error, it's a constant and deliberate running joke throughout the film that the characters have such disrespect for the books.

Factual error: In Sintra, when Depp and the girl go to Fargas' house in the morning, they ride the motorbike and turn left. However, from Hotel Central to this house you must turn right, it's the road that climbs to the manors, the other way you'll get to Central Village.

Factual error: Depp descends from the long-journey train (you can see it's the same train) from Toledo in Sintra. However, no long-journey trains stop in this station, just suburban trains: a direct travel Toledo-Sintra is impossible.

Factual error: At the end of the movie, the authentic page falls from atop the bookcase. This page appears to be a doubled sized, stapled page - not possible when it was created.
