  • The first title had included the article, so it was "The Pendrive"

  • The script given to the actor who played P didn't include the last scene. His reaction is authentic.

  • In the first version of the screenplay, the content of the pen drive wasn't supposed to be discovered

  • All the characters' names are the initial letters of the corresponding actor. The only exception is V, because "I" (the actor's name is Ivan) didn't sound good in Italian.

  • In the B's monologue at the end, she's at the center of the shot. At her left, there's the complex architecture of the building that represents her complex past, at her right the sunset, representing the liberty in her future.
