Trivia Question

In an early scene of "The Da Vinci Code," Robert Langdon stumbles upon a murder at the Louvre. To evade the pursuing authorities who mistakenly consider him the perpetrator, he makes a daring escape by leaping from a window located in a restroom adjacent to the room showcasing the Mona Lisa.

Why is this impossible?

 

Answer

In a Master Class video, Dan Brown clarifies the restroom does indeed exist, but it is positioned on the opposite side of the room from where he situates it in the book. In that location, it would be impossible to have a window.
