2.The shooting of the film began on October 1, 2003 — after Tom Hanks finished filming the movie "Gentlemen's Games".
30The picture is based on a true story of what happened to Merhan Karimi Nasseri, an Iranian citizen who was "stuck" at Charles De Gaulle Airport in France in 1988 (his briefcase containing all the documents was stolen).
4.Initially, the motion picture was supposed to be directed by Andrew Niccol, who rewrote the first version of the script.
