READERS: THE REST OF POST INCLUDES DISCUSSION OF THE MOVIE'S ENDING SO BE WARNED FOR THIS SEMI-SPOILER.
Okay folks, I'm looking for a vote here on the ending to the movie. Here's the controversy I'm trying to start:
Did Jose adopt Nina's daughter (Bella), and then reunite Nina and Bella four years later?
Did Jose, after convincing Nina to keep the child and put her up for adoption, find the adopting couple a few years later and arrange a meeting?
Now, I invite you to give me your opinion and reasons why, but PLEASE DO NOT LOOK UP ANY COMMENTARY OR INFO ON THE WEB-- I JUST WANT YOUR OWN OPINION BASED ON YOUR VIEWING OF THE MOVIE...
A couple of pros and cons: Jose whispered something to his brother Manny, who responds "you're going to WHAT?" Did Jose say he was going to adopt Nina's child? That's certainly a logical and obvious assumption. But if that's the case then why would Jose and Nina wait four years before reuniting mother and child? And wasn't the little girl on the beach at the beginning of the movie Bella, running around with other girls as Jose watched them, until her "father" (I daresay an older man with his older wife) called for her? Could that have been Bella's adopted father and mother?
I haven't looked up any info and I won't until I get some opinions logged in. Looking forward to some honest discussion. Maybe we can reignite interest in the movie since I understand it's not doing well. Thanks!
