The conversation in the kitchen between Gal (Ray Winstone) and Don (Sir Ben Kingsley) originally took place in the living room, but Director Jonathan Glazer decided that a more domestic and less formal setting would be more effective. Also, the shot where Don kicks the cabinet doors was done in only one take. Glazer decided that coverage wasn't necessary.
