Ocean's Twelve

Trivia: In the last scene when the everyone meets to play poker Catherine Zeta Jones throws her hands up to celebrate a win and falls out of her chair for real.

Trivia: The scene shot in Amsterdam Central Station was actually shot at the Haarlem train station. Dutch Railway officials didn't allow the interference of trains schedules on such a crowded station, since they're fined by the Dutch government for every delay. Haarlem is much quieter a station and just as beautiful a location. Also the Europol headquarters are in fact the Hague's City Hall.

Trivia: Dutch antique collector Van Der Woude is named after the movie's second unit director Bas Van Der Woude.

Visible crew/equipment: When Ocean tells the Nightfox about the fake Faberge, there's a shot of the Nord Train. When we see the left side of the train, watch its window and you will be able to see a camera and a cameraman reflected.

Answer: A "lost in translation" is a kind of con - Danny, Rusty and Matsui basically pulled a prank on Linus to make him feel like he didn't know what they were talking about when, in fact, they were just speaking gibberish.

Almost right. Actually, Danny, Rusty and Matsui weren't just speaking nonsense, all the conversation contains their plan.

Answer: It's a joke that Matsui plays on newbies. Near the end of the film, When Linus tells his mother (Cherry Jones) he blew the meet with Matsui, she explains that's his idea of a joke on new players. Linus then comments he didn't see that coming. (Damon shows a moment of bad acting, he can barely contain his laughter).
