Noomi Rapace fractured her nose during filming when an elbow accidentally hit her face. She, however, didn't realize the extent of the injury until much later so, after a brief black out, she just got up and insisted on carrying on with the scene. As of April 2015, the fracture had yet to be mended and had healed up in a broken state (meaning it needs to be re-broken up again in order to fix). See more »

Michael Apted is still here and apter than ever...
Those who could think the UK TV vet director Michael Apted dead and buried will be deceived, or enjoyed, for those who loved his work. Don't forget that this film maker began his career during the early sixties, in UK. Then he came to the movies, giving us, in the nineties, some James Bond stuff, before getting back to modern TV shows, and then here again to the cinema...I admire him. And this movie is very good, tense, action packed, without many clichés, although not totally ridden, with the CIA conspiracy theory - which French movie industry could never make concerning its own government - and a female heroine who behaves like a man, a testosterone woman played by a terrific Noomi Rapace. And Michael Douglas is very unexpected but so damn good in this character. I won't spoil it any further. But, I repeat, that's a good surprise.
