Whoa! No the last scene was the shot of the school. Think you must have caught some z's after the flashback. I suggest grabbing an expresso and having another look at the film!

Alia is wise indeed. It's a brilliant interview he does. Bavarian film makers - can't beat em :)

hahaha danke, wowser, das stimmt! Gotta say I found that interview very frustrating though....he looked like the cat that had got the proverbial cream!

Phillip - you're hilarious. We'll agree to disagree with this one then!

Agreed, no sense beating a dead horse.
Have you seen Battle in Heaven?  Now there's a film to talk about.

I can recommend this article if you'd like to read a more eloquent discussion of what I've tried to articulate: http://www.realtimearts.net/rt75/ford_hidden.htm

Your link doesnt work. Regardless, I dont really want the director's take on it - I'm sure he intended the ending to be ambiguous. I was just wondering what people here thought.

Apologies, Eddie - try http://www.realtimearts.net/rt75/ - that will get you to the index then select ford_hidden.html
And this isn't an interview with the director, rather a discussion of the cultural, thematic and technical aspects of the film. Thought you might be interested. But yes, my two cents worth: loved the ending...sat there going 'What the F*ck?!', turned to my friend, who expressed much the same. One reviewer called it a Rorschach montage - which I think is the best way to describe it.

Phillip - indeed, let's leave the horse rest in peace. Battle in Heaven? Nope...do tell!
