By casting Mikael Persbrandt, Susanne Bier continues a habit of combining Danish and Swedish actors in her films, see also Rolf Lassgård in After the Wedding (2006), Rafael Edholm in The One and Only (1999) and Ghita Nørby in Like It Never Was Before (1995), among others.


Anton: Sometimes it feels like there is a veil between you and death, but that veil disappears when you lose someone you loved or someone who was close to you, and you see death clearly, for a second, but later the veil returns, and you carry on living. ...


In the first minutes of the movie, the white T-Shirt that Anton (Mikael Persbrandt) is wearing during the surgery of the little girl gets blood stained (at around 24 mins). When finished and outside the tent, the stain is much smaller and misplaced (at around 20 mins). When leaving on the small truck, the blood stain has moved once more (at around 50 mins).
