La fin du film : la parole aux New-Yorkais New Yorkers Speak About The RM Ending




La fin du film, on l’a donc vu, a beaucoup prêté à controverse, parce qu’elle n’a souvent pas été comprise, notamment dans la presse qui s'est empressée de l'utilliser comme un argument-massue contre le film. Mais dans le post précédent, l'interview de Will Fetters par Brad Brevet explique très clairement quelle était l'intention du film. Un tel éclaircissement était apparemment nécessaire, à tel point que cette interview a généré plus de 300 commentaires de spectateurs (parmi lesquels je suis), qui à quelques rares exceptions près, confirment tous qu’ils ont bien saisi l’intention du film et ont aimé Remember Me, contrairement à la majorité des critiques.
J’ai pensé qu’il était intéressant de faire découvrir peu à peu les témoignages de ces spectateurs, et pour commencer, qui de mieux placés que des New-Yorkais ayant vécu en direct la tragédie, et touchés parfois personnellement par la perte d’un être aimé ?
Voici donc trois témoignages extraits de ces commentaires, que j'ai mis dans des posts à part.

The ending of the film is, as can be seen, strongly controversial because so many critics did not understand it - and were quick to use it to pan the film. However, the Will Fetters interview by Brad Brevet (see previous post) delineates very clearly what the real intent of the film was. It turns out that such an explanation was apparently necessary, as this interview generated a tremendous amount of comments (currently more than 300, and I commented there too) by viewers who, in their overwhelming majority, wrote that they had loved RM and they had got what the film was about, something most critics did not.
I thought it would be interesting to post regularly some of these comments. And to start with those who are the most rightly entitled to speak about how they felt about the ending: the New Yorkers who saw it all with their own eyes, and who sometimes lost a beloved one in the tragedy.
I have selected three comments by New Yorkers who witnessed the tragedy first-hand and placed them in the next posts.

  1. Rum...It is a very good idea to post their comments here. If anyone has a right to voice their opinions about the ending, it is New Yorkers, and specifically those who lost loved ones that day.

  2. @jessegirl... Yes, I thought it was only fitting to let them "speak" first. The film is a tribute to all those who suffered through the 9/11 and lost a beloved one, and saw their city and nation attacked. So, New Yorkers first.
