When Julia leans over her (presumed dead) accomplice, the camera films her from behind and her pearl earrings are revealed as "ear wires". Those were a cheap 2000's invention. See more »

As reported by E! Online on December 2000, sex scene between Luis and Julia was originally 20 minutes long, but was heavily edited before being put into film, due to original scene being too much like soft-core porn. See more »
Dispite the critics dislike of the film, I have to say that its problably the best dramatic flick I've seen this year. I especially
enjoyed the acting. I have to say it was beautifully directed and the screenwriter did an amazing job to hold all that together. Angelina's best film to date has to be this one. Antonio Banderas was just mindblowing. The set design was great. The movies topic on a mailbride's secret motives and a good intentioned man with a good mix in characters. I reccomend this to anyone in a start os a serious relationship.
