The real-life Waldy Nods, son of Waldemar and Rika Nods, attended the film's premiere in Suriname at age 81, four years before he passed away. He responded favorably to the film, stating that "every time I see their image, I fall in love with those two people playing my parents".
When Rika is in the camps, sitting outside in the rain, she has a flashback to an earlier scene that took place shortly after Waldemar moved in and they were all dancing outside in the rain with her young children. In the Flashback, Sonny Boy (who's not born yet at that time) appears as a teenager dancing in the rain as well.
