Goofs

When Theo has agreed to help the Fishes by getting transit papers for Kee and follows an agent to what turns out to be a meeting with Julian on a Double Decker Bus, the bus he chases and presumably boards is a thinly disguised MCW Metrobus, dating from circa 1982, with characteristic boxy, old-fashioned appearance. However, when we cut to the bus interior, it is that of a Wrightbus Gemini model, dating from 2003 or later - this model is much curvier in shape than the Metrobus. Once Julian and Theo leave the bus, it passes by, and we see that it is indeed now the modern vehicle from which they have alighted, carrying the manufacturer's stylised 'W' moulding on the rear panel.


Crazy Credits

At the very end, one can read "Shantih, Shantih, Shantih" with children shouting and laughing on the soundtrack, which can be heard repeatedly throughout the end credits. This is the last line of T.S. Eliot's 1922 poem "The Wasteland." "Shantih" means "peace" in Hindi.
