I saw this film at Cannes Film Festival in 2001 and was very impressed by the ending. However, when I saw Kaurismaki's Match Factory Girl last year, I found that the ending and the movement of the camera picturing Lovely Rita is almost same with Match Factory Girl.
The stories of those two films are different, but when you see the ending itself, you could say they are sharing the same ending.
The film still remains good to me, but the ending belongs to AKI KAURISMAKI
