Alfonso Cuarón initially was going to make a "Darwinian Adam and Eve" story, which was a family drama set either 50,000 or 100,000 years ago, before Roma.

Mountains are old, but they're still green.
The subtitles misspell the model name of the family's Ford Galaxie as "Galaxy."
It looks like the credits are freeze frame. The only thing that moves during the credits are the passing of two airplanes. The clouds don't move during the entire credits.
