Before Sunset

Continuity mistake: When Jesse and Celine are walking along, there is a man in a red shirt who is just getting ready to pass them (with the camera shot looking from their backs). The scene shifts to a frontal shot, but the man in the red shirt does not pass immediately as he should have. There is too long of a time gap before he finally appears in the shot and passes Jesse and Celine.

Continuity mistake: Celine is opening her apartment door. The door-handle is on the left side. When they walk in and close the door, the door-handle inside is again on the left side. (01:08:25)

Factual error: Celine and Jesse are walking from Shakespeare & Company on the left bank of Seine to the Pure Cafe on the right bank, but they never cross a bridge.

Trivia: While the film was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay, it is not actually adapted from an existing work. The Academy rulebook defines any sequels as "adaptations," since they are based off of the original film.
