Amelie (2001)

Continuity mistake: Before Dominique Bredoteau enters the phonebooth he has a bag in his left hand. When the camera angle changes he transfers it to his right hand as his arms suggest. When he replaces the handset he swaps the bag back to his left hand picking up the tin box with one hand. The camera cuts to an overhead shot of him holding the tin box with both hands not allowing enough time for him to put the bag down. (00:29:35)

Amelie (2001)

Question: How does Raymond Dufayel aka Glass Man know Amélie is looking for Bretodeau/Bredoteau aka The Box Man. He says "I've lived here for five years. This is the first time we've met." Then adding that he never goes out on the landing, they're all creeps. So my question is who told him Amélie was looking for The Box Man? Lucien the grocer boy maybe? As he delivers to his flat. Or maybe Madeleine Wallace the Concierge (00:26:20)

Chosen answer: The Glass Man isn't as reclusive as he tells Amelie; he obviously talks to many people and spies on them with his binoculars (he knows all about Amelie's revenge on the grocer and the letter she wrote to Mrs. Wells). It isn't revealed where he got the specific information about Amelie's search for Dominique Bredoteau.

Amelie (2001)

Visible crew/equipment: Amelie steals her father's gnome, runs back to the train station, but it is closing, so she sleeps in a photobooth. As the camera zooms in on her look at the right side of the booth, and you can see a shadow casting over it from the camera crew. (00:38:05)
