Trivia
When Alba tells Dasha that her two-wheeled vehicle is called the "Aspasia," Dasha smiles and says she knows after whom it was named. Aspasia was the lover (and maybe wife) of Pericles, the leader during Athen's Golden Age in the Fifth Century B.C. when the arts flourished and the Parthenon was built.

Julio Medem wrote the part of Alba for Elena Anaya. When the actress accepted the role, she and Medem went to Russia to cast the perfect Dasha. After seeing a lot of actresses, they found the perfect one, but the night before this woman was flying to Spain to start rehearsals, her husband read the screenplay and forbade her to play the role. Funny enough, Medem and Anaya found Natasha Yarovenko while casting in Spain, specifically in Barcelona.

Goofs
In what's meant to be the same scene shown from two different angles, when Natacha's sat on the balcony, she can be seen from the bathroom, but not vice versa where there's a curtain in the way and it's clearly a separate set as there's no trace of the bedroom.

Quotes
Natasha: [in Russian; subtitled] I'm sorry, Vadim, but I can never tell you about this. I know you have many secrets about where you've been and the many women you've been with. Now, I have a secret. But it's much further away then yours. I have now been with a woman. I know I'm not lesbian. I know I'm not attracted to other women. Why am I attracted to this one? I am so confused. You'll always have that... my reflection. This... it's mine alone.

Alba: Natasha, never before, in my whole life, I've known a love like this. Not this way. And it can't be for nothing.
