The Ninth Gate

Revealing mistake: When Corso is being pushed through the floorboards (into his proper niche) we can see for a good second or two that it is certainly not Johnny Depp. (The stunt-double is Dominique Fouassier). (01:59:25)

Revealing mistake: During the fight scene on the riverbank when the white haired man lands on the pavement, the "concrete" pavement moves.

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.

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: Would the gas station still be called Shell and not the French word? Also, do they drive on the same side of car and street in France?

Answer: Shell is a Dutch petroleum company that may be better known in Europe than in America - its logo is the same worldwide. French cars have the steering wheel on the left, and you drive on the right in France.
