Quote from "Dancer in the dark"

"Isn't it annoying when they do the last song in the films? Because you just know when it goes really big and the camera goes out of the roof, and you know it's gonna end. I hate that. I used to cheat when I was a little girl, I would leave the cinema just after the two last songs, and the film just goes on forever!"

The Usual Suspects (closing credits)

Buckaroo Banzai (closing credits)

Final Major Project

I have always been frustrated by the end of a film. I wanted the story to continue after "the end".
Sometimes there is such a journey from the very first image to this last one, before the black screen, that I just pressed rewind a few seconds backward, and watched the last movements of that character, the last images of that landscape, the last look of that beauty, once again.

The closing credits give to the film a notion of timelessness, as if the very last moments of the story I had been seing were stretched a little bit more, during the lenght of the rolling text.

For me, that moment and the begining are the key points for a film that is going to stay in my mind.
