* AllJustADream: Subverted. [[spoiler:It initially appears that Francisís abduction was something she dreamt after falling asleep on the couch. But then she wakes up in a box, and, no, the abduction was real and the HopeSpot was the dream.]]


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Erica and Francesís father share one when they realise they were both fooled into thinking Francis was with the other.


* {{Foreshadowing}}: Greta is constantly listening to and playing Liszt. [[spoiler: Liszt is one of the most famous, if not ''the'' most famous Hungarian composer, which is a clue of Greta's real background.]]

* BilingualBonus: After it turns out that [[spoiler:Greta isn't French at all, she starts to use more and more Hungarian words and expressions: in the restaurant she says ''"Miután mindent megtettem érted!"'' (After everything I've done for you!), later she addresses Frances as ''angyalom'' (my angel), uses the words ''kisujj'' (pinky), ''mézeskalács'' (gingerbread), ''ragadós'' (sticky), and states that ''"Ez tényleg fáj."'' (It really hurts.), while treating her wound. Also-also, her surname, ''Hideg'' means cold in Hungarian.]]

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: [[spoiler:Isabelle Huppert's Hungarian is remarkably bad, which might sound even more amusing to native speakers, when Greta tries correct Frances' pronounciation of ''mézeskalács'' (gingerbread).

(my pinky) would sound definitely more realistic.]] [[note]]There are no determiners like ''my'' in Hungarian, as it uses only possessive suffixes (''my'' angel → angyal''om'', ''my'' pinky → kisujj''am'' etc.). It's highly unlikely that a native speaker would produce such an idiosyncratic sentence.[[/note]]
