- The Americans react to the sun being up late at night. The sun doesn't set until after 10.30 PM in the area around midsummer, but the lack of long shadows reveals that the scene does not take place in the late evening at 61° North but rather around noon at 47° North (Hungary). The film appears to be filmed in Utah which is around 42 degree N - instead of Sweden (which is 61 degree N) that would explain this discrepancy.
- The outfits the villagers of Hårga wear during the celebrations are vyshyvankas, which is part of the Ukrainian and Belarusian national costumes, not the national or regional costumes of Sweden and Hälsingland.
- The sun is referred to in terms as "father", but in Scandinavian cultures the sun is often referred to as feminine because the Norse word for sun is a feminine gendered noun. For example, in Norse mythology the Sun is said the be dragged through the sky in a chariot by a goddess.
- At the end, when corpses are led to the temple with barrows, crane rails can be seen on the left.
