  • California Doubling: Averted. The movie was shot in Italy, and they were going to film on the real balcony, but it was too narrow. The scene is shot in the courtyard, with a replica balcony. This was the first time filming had ever been done inside there.
  • Casting Gag: Patricia is played by Ashley Lilley, Amanda Seyfried's real life best friend. As in the Patricia she mistakes for the ex-girlfriend.

  • Fake Brit: Chris Egan playing Charlie is Australian.
  • Real-Life Relative: Franco Nero and Vanessa Redgrave broke up, married other people, reunited and married in real life.
  • Reality Subtext:
    • Like Claire, Vanessa Redgrave had travelled to Italy in her youth and spent a lot of time there.
    • The Intimate Hair Brushing scene also had resonance for Vanessa - acting as a surrogate mother to another girl - as her own daughter Natasha Richardson had passed away not long before.
