- The print for Cannes arrived three hours before the delayed premier, escorted by police. It is the first film in Cannes' history to arrive so late that re-schedulings were necessary.
- The camera points to the left side of 王菲's face when she cries. She has problems crying with her right eye, so Wong Kar-Wai shot her crying scenes on the left side of her face. However, there is one scene where the camera films the right side of her face purposely.
- Each character speaks their own languages. Mr. Chow speaks Cantonese, Bai Ling speaks Mandarin, and Tak speaks Japanese even when talking to each other. Even so, they seem to understand each other perfectly.
