V for Vendetta

Trivia: In the scene where Evey gets her hair cut, it was Natalie Portman's real hair they cut. They had only one shot to capture that scene, and everybody was quite nervous if the scene would turn out usable.

Trivia: When V is trying to get to the subway train he drags himself along the tile wall because he is injured. Look at the wall and you'll see a 'V' in blood.

Trivia: The scene with the dominoes was achieved completely physically. Weijers Domino Productions from the Netherlands took three days to set up 22 000 dominoes for the scene and actually had to do it twice because of issues with the camera angles the first time around.

Trivia: The flashback in which V escapes from the flaming Larkhill facility was done in-camera with CG only for touchups because of cost issues. Stuntman Chad Stahelski wore only a G-string and cooling gel to protect him from the flames while performing the stunt.

Trivia: Allegedly most of the books in V's Shadow Gallery are actually pulp romance novels, fishing manuals and technical journals, hence why they're all arranged so none of the spines are visible.

Continuity mistake: As V attacks all of Creedy's men with his knives, in one shot he cuts one man's neck, and blood sprays onto the man's face, but in the next shot as the man falls, his face is clean.

Evey: My father used to tell me that artists use lies to tell the truth while politicans use them to cover the truth up.
V: A man after my own heart.

More quotes from V for Vendetta

Question: It becomes clear that V gives his victims Scarlet Carson roses in memory of Valerie, but how does Delia work out that the murderer is V from the roses? Surely she didn't know that Valerie had written to V mentioning them. Also, are we ever told what V was originally imprisoned for?

Answer: Nothing is ever revealed about V's history before Larkhill so we don't know why he was there. As for the roses, in the original comic book, in order to keep him compliant during his time in captivity, V was allowed to tend a small garden while his health was monitored. It was during that time that he first grew the Scarlet Carson roses and also surreptitiously obtained the chemicals that he would use to destroy Larkhill and make his escape. Whether this can be considered consistent with the film storyline is an open question - certainly nothing in the film actively appears to contradict it.
