** Marnie's features are even more unlikely. Her father is a blond, blue-eyed "foreigner" of some kind but her mother appears to be a standard Japanese beauty (black hair and dark eyes.) Needless to say, the odds that their child would be a blond, blue-eyed girl are remote to the point of being practically impossible.

* RedHerring: Brief, early flashbacks Anna has of herself as a little girl show her clutching a doll that resembles Marnie, which causes observant viewers to assume that Marnie is entirely an imaginary friend, which Anna herself comes to believe for a moment. [[spoiler: Marnie is revealed to have actually been much, much more: Anna's grandmother as a young girl.]]

* BaitAndSwitchLesbians: The beginning of the movie is virtually ''dripping'' with romantic tension between the two main characters, which led many viewers to believe that this would lead to a payoff by the end. [[spoiler: Marnie is Anna's grandmother. As girl she had feelings for Kazuhiko, a boy whom she later marries. Marnie was effectively viewing Anna as a stand-in for Kazuhiko all along.]]
