It's not a secret message, just a simple instruction. You just need to look at the whole interchange: Bond: Dry Martini. Bartender: Oui, monsieur. Bond: Wait... three measures of Gordon's; one of vodka; half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it over ice, and add a thin slice of lemon peel. Bartender: Yes, sir. Tomelli: You know, I'll have one ...

You must have overlooked how Bond put a tracker/microphone on Le Chiffre's inhaler: In the elevator he asks Vesper to open the envelope while he puts a wireless earpiece in his ear: He takes the gun while holding a phone in his left hand: The phone displays Le Chiffre's position: So yes, Bond had a plan.

I don't think that had any kind of deeper message to it. Bond was ordering a rather complex drink from the waiter, part of which consisted of some kind of fruit (don't know what exactly, a piece of lemon peel maybe?). After that everybody else joined him and ordered the same, only that Felix didn't want the "fruit" in it. I don't really think there was any ...

Could be "good evening" in German (Google pronunciation - it's a bit mechanical). Compare to Bond in this video at 32:22. Really hard to tell.

As for how bond finds out Le Chiffre is bluffing was due to the aspect of the previous game they play (one before the game where bond actually loses everything) where le chiffre simply ups the ante with nothing but wins the game at the dealing of the river. At the top of my hat i believe this is the dialogue which ensues between Bond, Vesper and their ...

Since you are not aware of the nuances of the game Poker, I won't delve into it and restrict myself strictly to what was shown in the movie. If you have observed, Le Chiffre used to place his left hand near his wounded eye at times during play. That was his physical tell. A tell in poker is a change in a player's behavior or demeanor that is claimed by ...

I would assume it means no lemon

As other posts mentioned, hold the fruit means without the lemon peel. Since Bond's drink ends up being poisoned in the next scene, it could be that Felix feared that Bond might be poisoned and wanted to make sure he didn't accidentally drink from the glass intended for Bond (they were sitting right next to each other). Obviously Felix wasn't involved in ...

Most movies do not try to maintain a consistent geography of real life places. To say there are countless examples of stuff like this would be an understatement - I would guess over 90% of films have scenes where characters go down the street, turn a corner, and wind up in an entirely different part of the city. The intent is always to serve the needs of ...

It's a phrase similar to, and in this case having the same meaning as, the phrase 'hold the x' which is an American English device for asking for something to be left out, or held back, especially from a food order. The verbs 'keep' and 'hold' here are synonymous in the sense of 'have or retain possession of' and so can be used interchangeably to mean the ...

Le Chiffre's Eye weeps when hes stressed (has a bad hand) its his "Tell".
