Goofs

There is a Volkswagen Beetle car painted black used by the Nazis. The model shown in the movie has a wide rear window which was not introduced to this car until the late 1950s. Also, it would not be entirely correct to use this car as used in the movie because the initial production from 1941 to 1945 consisted of only a handful of units. See more »

Quotes

Paul Ricken: A good photographer must know how to paint with light.
Francesc Boix: That is cheating.
Paul Ricken: This is art.
Paul Ricken: Some pictures have to be touched up. Some others, only the staging. Human beings are malleable.
