Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the man in the suit and the woman wearing all black are fighting, if you look closely you can see the string used to pull the podium holding the book.
A sleazy book dealer Dean Corso (Depp) is hired by the obscure obsessive Boris Balkan to find the only other two copies of his rare book in existence. The book is called 'The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows', and Balkan wants to authenticate his copy of this 17th century occult work, said to have been written by the devil himself, but complications, both natural and supernatural, arise at every turn.
Ceniza: Even Hell has its heroes, señor.
Trivia: Probably the most impressive visual effect in this film is when Corso consults the twin brothers Pablo and Pedro Ceniza (rare book experts). Both Ceniza twins were played by actor José López Rodero in the subtle and entirely convincing digital effect sequence. The only flaw was that the elderly twins had identical facial wrinkles, which never happens with real-life twins. Beyond that, José López Rodero additionally played the two nameless workmen that Corso encounters at the end of the film, meaning that Rodero played four digital-effect roles in this movie.
Question: Does "the girl" - as she's been called - have a name? And is she a (or the) devil?
