The language spoken by Rose Hearn (Charlize Theron) is Afrikaans, one of the official languages of South Africa. She says, "Hello Mr. Botha, can I call you back? You would never believe who just walked in here, it's Eddie Flemming. Thank you, good-bye." Botha was a famous boxer in the 1990s from South Africa. Charlize was born in South Africa, and speaks fluent Afrikaans.
Why don't you keep it? Don't say I never gave you anything.
When Eddie is talking to Jordy in the burned-down crime scene, his cigar disappears between shots. It is possible that Eddie has taken the cigar out of his mouth off-screen, but it would have had to happen very quickly.
A film by Oleg Rasgul is superimposed over the final clip of footage from Oleg's camera near the end.
