Death of the mom
25 November 2017 | by ElliesWonderSee all my reviews

I am not sure if this is an independent movie because I am not a professional. But the movie only took in limited locations, so we the audience put more focus on the actor's acting and faces expressions. The older sister Lisa (Mélusine Mayance) was acting amazing, and she is a puzzle, I still couldn't figure out if she likes her brother or not. It was so creepy when she used the scissors to point to Ricky's wing. But she also smiled so shinily every time when Ricky was flying. I guess sibling relationship is complex, and the movie really sent out this message, how uneven parenting cares would be like in reality.

About the ending.

I have a different thought compared to others, I don't know if I was the only one who came in this thoughts or not, but I just wanted to keep it down, although they look so dark.

One of my interpreted to the end was the mom, Katie was dead. After Katie stepped toward the river, she saw Ricky, the baby angle flying the wings, which means she was dead, especially there were hallos. So in the next screen, Lisa and Paco (Katie's daughter and husband) were shocked to open the door, because they hear the bad news from police or something. Therefore, Lisa and Paco lived together after the death of Katie. Paco probably felt guilty and would make up to Lisa, and Lisa was happy because she finally got all the attention and the love is only for her. Otherwise, there are no other reasons why Lisa would feel happy. There is the static article to show, a child would feel more and more desperate and unhappiness when more siblings were born.

The last pregnancy screen was a flashback earlier when Katie having Ricky. The movie never filmed Katie's pregnancy period, it just skipped to Ricky's birth. It can be a beautiful memory of Lisa and Paco.

As above, they just some of my weird thoughts, I liked this movie because it is interesting, and different people can have a different interpretation.
