My House In Umbria

Deliberate mistake: After Emily talks to inspector Girotti she starts a record player. Then she walks over to the window, sees Werner in the garden, and decides to go down. Between shots she appears behind him, which is wrong, as the song from the record goes on, but it's most probably intended. (00:30:45)

Other mistake: When Tom is lying on the road closely inspecting the local ant population, the doctor's cinquecento has to brake and almost skids off the dirt road. However, there was no need for such an emergency stop since the doctor was driving quite slowly and Tom was still about 50 meters away from where the car stopped. (00:45:35)

Continuity mistake: When we see Aimée painting for the first time she is sitting at the kitchen table. When the camera cuts to a close-up of the picture it's quite different from the one in the wide shot. (00:23:20)

Mrs. Emily Delahunty: In the garden, delphiniums were in flower. Through scented twilight, the girl in the white dress walked with a step as light as a morning cobweb. That evening she hadn't a care in the world.

Mrs. Emily Delahunty: I have several other names. Perhaps you might prefer one of them? Gloria Grey. Janine Ann Johns. Cora Lamont.
Aimee: Why do you have so many names?
Mrs. Emily Delahunty: Well, we have different clothes for different occasions. Why not have different names?

Mrs. Emily Delahunty: My real parents were... travellig entertainers. They had no use for a child. "Not the sort of people you'd care for", said the mother who wasn't my mother. The people I lived with couldn't have children. They bought me.
