* EiffelTowerEffect: Many shots of Berlin landmarks, both famous (Cassiel perched atop the Berlin Victory Column) and infamous (the Berlin Wall, still standing in 1986).



** There is a similar match cut between a black-and-white view of the Berlin skyline (right after the boy jumps to his death, from Cassiel's perspective) to a color shot of the skyline from a hotel room where Peter Falk and the movie folks are having a meeting.
