Continuity mistake: The cave bear tears the head off the man with the blue eyes. In the very next shot there is no trace of blood anywhere on the bear.
Continuity mistake: When the lion cuts Ayla's leg there are three cuts, however, when Isa finds her passed out, there are four cuts.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when Ayla's mom is dying, Ayla grabs on to a finger or her outstretched hand. The scene cuts and Ayla's mom has her hand wrapped around Ayla's hand.
Trivia: Jean M Auel, who wrote the book, was not at all pleased with the movie.
Question: Is the clan language American sign language, some other sign language or made up?
Chosen answer: Completely made up. It was too difficult to teach all the actors ASL.
Question: I understand that certain changes need to be made when adapting a book to the screen, but can anyone tell me the reason why they so radically changed an ending which would have worked fine as it was in the book?
Chosen answer: The only reason I (and anyone I asked) could find was that, as usual, they discarded the ending though emotionally intense for the sake of another climax full of physical violence after the belief that this is the type of endings people prefer in the movies. Really sad indeed.
