Production notes

  • Financed solely in France, the film was shot in Toronto, Ontario. Several landmarks, hotels, hot spots and restaurants are used and seen in the movie with their actual names.
  • Liam Neeson's wife, Natasha Richardson, had a skiing accident during filming, so Neeson decided to leave the set to take care his wife (and his wife unfortunately died a few days later). The filmmakers changed the script accordingly for Neeson’s absence.[7] But just a few days after his wife's death, Neeson himself decided to return to the set; he eventually finished his performance in two days.[8]
  • Egoyan said that the film is actually more erotically charged than Nathalie... (the French original).[9]
  • Canadian indie band Raised by Swans has two songs featured in the movie and the band is mentioned several times by Chloe.
  • Anne Fontaine (the writer/director of Nathalie...) said that she was interested in Egoyan's take on her original. Fontaine also said that she even wasn't happy with Nathalie..., because the two lead actresses of the film objected to Fontaine's original intention for an erotic relationship to develop between their characters.[10]
