* ''VideoGame/DayZ'' uses the same map as {{ARMA}} II, so the geography and building placement are lifted from a real area in the Czech Republic. The in-game map is so accurate that you can actually use it to navigate the real area.

-> ''She refers to a phenomenon of moviegoing which I have called certification. Nowadays when a person lives somewhere, in a neighborhood, the place is not certified for him. More than likely he will live there sadly and the emptiness which is inside him will expand until it evacuates the entire neighborhood. But if he sees a movie which shows his very neighborhood, it becomes possible for him to live, for a time at least, as a person who is Somewhere and not Anywhere.''

It's often considered a German equivalent of ''Literature/{{Ulysses}}''. The 1931 Film version was shot in the real-life ''Alexanderplatz'', however Fassbinder's miniseries could not really achieve this[[note]]Alexanderplatz lapsed into East Berlin and much of it had been damaged by UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and the show was made on a low-budget using sets from Creator/IngmarBergman's period film ''The Serpent's Egg'' set in the same era[[/note]] so he more or less set most of the action in interiors rather than exteriors (except for the finale set in the forest).
