Dealing with a man suffering from disorders

i ave seen this movie 14 times this is indisputably a masterpiece no one can deny that but unfortunately this film is not available in lots of countries this movie is about

a young man who starts a relationship with an old man who can fly(he says)

in my opinion at the end of the movie he FLYS !

he reached redemption it deals with man struggle with himself it show lots of new human being's problems in this dirty world so he becomes this enfranchised and feels not a part of society he decide to build his own world but the power of these filthy human being are more than him so decides not to be in this world
