Character error 

When Irena is alarmed by the woman in the restaurant, she makes the sign of the cross left-to-right, as a Western Catholic would. However, as a Serb, she would more likely have made it right-to-left, as Orthodox and Eastern Catholics do. And if she was Orthodox, she would join three fingers (thumb, index and middle finger) to make the sign of the cross, not use the whole hand.

Irena makes reference to the people of her village having mass, however this is only a Western Catholic term. As a Serb, she would likely be Eastern Orthodox and thus would use the term "Divine Liturgy."

Spoilers

The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Oliver finds Irina's body, he kneels over her, looks up and nods his head, wordlessly confirming she is dead. His face is seen in profile as he does so, and his lips clearly never move, however the audio track has him then speak the last line of the film "She never lied to us."
