Continuity mistake: When Anne and Nicolas are at the dining room table having soup, you can see that Anne's spoon is next to the bowl and not in the soup itself while she is reading and not eating. A few seconds later she still has the book in her hands, but now the spoon is in the soup. (00:24:05)
