Crazy Credits: We know about 1 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
At the very end, one can read “Shantih, Shantih, Shantih” with children shouting and laughing on the soundtrack, which can be heard repeatedly throughout the end credits. This is the last line of T.S. Eliot's 1922 poem “The Wasteland.” “Shantih” means “peace” in Hindi.
Goofs: We know about 11 goofs. Here comes one of them:
Continuity: When Theo has agreed to help the Fishes by getting transit papers for Kee and follows an agent to what turns out to be a meeting with Julian on a Double Decker Bus, the bus he chases and presumably boards is a thinly disguised MCW Metrobus, dating from circa 1982, with characteristic boxy, old-fashioned appearance. However, when we cut to the bus interior, it is that of a Wrightbus Gemini model, dating from 2003 or later – this model is much curvier in shape than the Metrobus. Once Julian and Theo leave the bus, it passes by, and we see that it is indeed now the modern vehicle from which they have alighted, carrying the manufacturer's stylised 'W' moulding on the rear panel.
Trivia: There are 37 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- Halfway through this film, when Theo is walking down the ramp on Battersea Power Station, a stenciled image can be seen on a wall of two policemen kissing. This image was created by “Banksy”, a British “guerilla artist” who specializes in this type of work. There are also other works of this artist in the film. One of them is a stenciled image of a child looking down a shop.
- Theo is seen wearing a London 2012 Olympics fleece in the Bexhill tower block scene.
- For the first week of release at Leicester Square, London, there was a mistake on the cinema marquee, declaring the film title to be “Children of Me”.
