Did that ending make sense to anybody
Is this the new Nicole Kidman movie?
Yes, was it one of those films that had extra after the credits? because i never waited
Not sure but I have it on order from DVDSoon and was hoping this would be a good movie for the wife
I saw the film yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot, although I too found the plot rather puzzling. It was the general mood of the picture that appealed to me (especially the music).
I assume that the story was meant to be ambiguous.
As I understood it, the "present" that Clifford's wife buried in the park contained love letters written by Sean I to her, who had been Sean's lover. Sean II found and read the letters, which might have given him enough info about Sean I to claim to be his reincarnation.
Since Sean II didn't recognize Clifford's wife, she convinced him that he couldn't possibly be Sean I's reincarnation.
But since it isn't very likely that the love letters contained all the knowledge about Sean I that Sean II seemed to have, maybe he really was a reincarnation.
So we have (at least) two alternatives:
1. Sean II was suffering from a delusion that he recovered from by the end of the film.
2. Sean II really was the reincarnation of Sean I; he couldn't remember the other woman because the one true love in his life had been his wife after all.
Neither alternative is especially convincing; additional interpretations are very welcome!
I stayed until the end of the credits: there were no extras (certainly no revelations!)
Cheers for the matey,
I liked the film, but the ending was too vague. It's been said that the way it was shot was a bit of a ripp off from rosemarys baby which i can see
