- Dawson Casting: Averted, as Sarina Farhadi is 13 years old at the time of filming playing a somewhat younger but still believable Termeh, who is stated to be 11 years old.
- No Budget: Made for a mere $500K (a little more than 5 billion rial), it went on to gross over $24 million (or 48 times its budget).
- Production Posse: Peyman Moaadi, Shahab Hosseini, and Merila Zarei all appeared in About Elly, Farhadi's previous film before this one.
- Real-Life Relative: Not the actors, but Termeh's actress, Sarina Farhadi, is the daughter of the film's director, Ashgar Farhadi.
