Fade outs in this film, which are traditionally used in movies to represent time passing or to conclude a certain scene, instead bring the viewers back to the point in time which the fade out began. The occasional fade outs and fade ins to Julie's character are used to represent an extremely subjective point of view. According to director Kieslowski: "at a certain moment, time really does pass for Julie while at the same time, it stands still. Not only does her music come back to haunt her at a certain point, but time stands still for a moment."
I appreciate what you did for me. But you see, I'm like any other woman. I sweat. I cough. I've cavities.
When Julie spits the pills out of her mouth, she has white powder on her lips. In the next shot of her after the nurse see's her, her lips are clean, then the powder is visible again in the next shot.
The final credit says in French, "We thank Alfa Romeo who allowed the scene of the accident to the Alfa 164 whose dynamics are of course purely imaginary."
