We can all lose control
Mario's pant is wet and soaked from the result of getting out of the river, later when he chases Diego from the back of the Audi, his pant is all dried up.

Factual Mistake
When Diego crashes his car, the airbags deploy, and stay inflated. In an actual crash, they'd deploy instantly and then deflate.

Factual Mistake
When the bride calls her husband's "guitar teacher", she is wearing gloves. The touchscreen of cell phones doesn't work that way.

Factual Mistake
In the segment "El más fuerte" the driver has a armored car. A simple jack could not jack up this type of car.

Where "Bombita" parks the car (Parera 25), is allowed to park there, but that's not the same place the tow truck takes the car (Juncal 1311) - Both places are 2 blocks from each other- ("Bombita" segment)

In the place where Bombita's car was parked (Juncal 1311) there is a sign prohibited parking and Tow Away, which in the film is deliberately hidden by the awning. ("Bombita" segment)

In the segment "Road to Hell", Audi A4 plates, UIA719 not correspond to the year of the car.
During the credits at the beginning, each main actor of each tale is identified with a wild animal. In the director's case, it is a fox. Szifrón said that this was because his father had liked foxes a lot, and had used to watch lots of documentaries about them. He also felt identified with that picture, more specifically with the fox's gaze, as the job of a director is in the gaze.

Official submission of Argentina to the best foreign language film category of the 87th Academy Awards 2015.

The film's original screenplay is 84 pages long and some of the six tales are featured in different order. It also includes a seventh tale, pretty much shorter than the other ones, called Bonus Track.

Damián Szifrón, the writer and director of the film, wrote most of the tales in his bathtub. He actually said: " The bath is a great place". He even lit some candles and poured himself a drink.

Selected by Time as one of the best films of 2014.

In the sequence where "Bombita" prepares the attack, the background music is the one that was used in the program "La salud de nuestos hijos" ("The health of our children") Hosted by Dr. Mario Socolinsky. The song is called "Aire Libre" performed by Lucien Belmond / Composed by: Deutscher Drafi - Beyer Guenter -1973-

In the story "Pasternak", when the model first mentions the name Gabriel Pasternak, this character is actually seen coming through the curtain in the back of the plane, carrying the coffee. He walks past the model and the music critic during the scene, and then enters the cockpit. His character was fully revealed later in the scene by the flight attendant.

In the story "Pasternak", the passenger who is sleeping in the same row as the music critic never wakes up during the entire flight.

The site of the bridge, in which the tale "The Strongest" was filmed, is actually the 60th kilometer on the route between Cafayate and Salta, as the character in the tale mentions. This place has become a kind of a tourist attraction nowadays, as can be seen in Google Street View at coordinates (-25.730669,-65.6967926).

This is the seventh film from Argentina to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, and the third in a row with Ricardo Darín as a leading star (after "El hijo de la novia" and "El secreto de sus ojos").

Shot in 8 weeks.
