My interpretation of the ending: the mom was dead
25 November 2017 | by ElliesWonderSee all my reviews

I am not sure if this is an independent movie because I am not a professional. The movie only filmed in limited locations, so we the audience put more focus on the actor's acting and facial expressions. The older sister Lisa (Mélusine Mayance) was acting amazing, and she is a puzzle, I still questing does she like her brother or not. It was creepy when she used the scissors and pointed it to Ricky's wing. Yet, she also smiled so sweet every time when Ricky was flying. I can only guess sibling relationship is complex if this is the message that the movie trying to send. Also the movie shows how parents plays their favorite and being unfair.

My interpretation about the ending; mine is quite dark and weird.

1) The mom, Katie was dead at the end. The character looks like having illusions when she saw Ricky, the baby angle was flying with wings, and she killed herself inside the water, especially the baby has hallo, it can be a metaphor.

2) the next screen, Lisa and Paco (Katie's daughter and husband) opened the door with shocked because they hear the bad news from police or something. Therefore, Lisa and Paco would live together after the death of Katie. Paco probably felt guilty and compensated 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, she looked very suffer with my mom and brother. There is a statistic article shows how desperate and unhappiness when a child have more siblings were born.

3)The last pregnancy screen was a flashback when Katie having Ricky. The movie never filmed Katie's pregnancy period, it just skipped to Ricky's birth. So this part can be tells as a beautiful memory of Lisa and Paco.

As above, they just my weird thoughts, different people can have a different interpretation.
