    1. When does it appear (what minute into the film)?

    2. The opening. Hummel is putting on his dress blue. There isn't any outdoor scene. We can only see the blurry indoor settings like windows, wall fittings and the dressing table, etc. Wonder if it was shot in a room of some hotel or house......Thank you~

    3. Well, if the exterior is not shown, and it's all blurry as you say, it's not possible to figure it out.

    5. If it was just interior, most likely it was filmed on a set.
