Movie Trivia:
  • Spain's Official Submission to the Best Foreign Language Film Category of the 80th Annual Academy Awards (2008).
  • One of the orphaned children Laura identifies in the photo she is shown she calls "Guillermo", an obvious nod to the Producer of the film. You also see his name during the scene where the window behind Laura smashes and she reveals the names of the old orphans and the dolls.
  • SPOILER: Laura's necklace, a St. Anthony medallion, makes a clever reference to her plight. In Catholic religion, St. Anthony is a doctor and patron saint of lost items.
