A Very Long Engagement

Factual error: The bird hovering near Manech's lighthouse is supposed to be an Albatross, but it's a Gannet.

Other mistake: The opening scene shows a soldier lighting his cigarette from a lantern. Not only does the cigarette not touch the flame, no smoke is seen as the soldier puffs on it.
