In reference to the discussion on Man Bites Dog, from IMDB: "According to an essay André wrote, Ben's family didn't know anything about the plot of the film. Ben's mother and grandparents thought they were filming raw footage of Ben, and had no idea that the footage was going to be used in a film in which Ben is a serial killer. Ben's mother was shocked to see her son behind bars, when she comes to visit him in prison." To get involved in the discussion, like us on facebook.com/threefilmegos.

He was replaced by Hugo Weaving... Portions of the film contain scenes with Purefoy playing V with a dubbing from Weaving." To get involved in the discussion, like us on facebook.com/threefilmegos.
