Trivia:

When David was asked if it was odd to have a western in eastern Europe, he joked, "We've had the spaghetti western - this is the 'baklava western'."

Writer/director Milcho Manchevski send David a long fax listing books and articles to read on The Balkans and America. David found many of them fascinating.

David was one of the few non-Macedonians on set who wasn't bothered by the extreme heat. He hated the wasps, however.

He never handled a gun prior to this film. The guns used were antiques and very fragile. David's cold fell apart in his hands in one scene and had to be repaired.

Tom Strauss (Catholic Priest) played Banjamin in Pope Joan.
