Goofs and Trivia:

  • In the end of the movie, when Martin is in Spain, a 2003 Nissan Almera passes in the foreground although the movie is supposed to take place in the 1970s.
  • In a scene on the pier you can see Martin drinking a “Zingo” with an a way to old label. In the year 1975 it should be quite undrinkable because it’s an about ten years old bottle.
  • When Martin is in the car with the bad guys and been offered a cigarette, a package “John Silver” appears. There have been a number of changes since 1975 and that one in the scene is from around year 2000.
  • The title is taken from the Ted Gärdestad song of the same name, which is part of the soundtrack.
