    "If you could see you're whole life from start to finish, would you change things?" What a beautiful compelling line

    Wonderful editing in this scene. In particular, I love the match cutting at 3:52 and 3:58 - like Louise's hug with Ian transported her to another similar moment in time, "reminding" her how good it felt to be held by him.

    I forgot how it felt to be held by you..... got me. You can feel the love and dispite knowing her future she still wanna do it all with him. True love.

    Amor fati! Perfect. If you could see your whole life from start to finish, would you change things?

    A true lesson of humanity! Who never look to the stars and dreamed with the infinite? So much love showed, and so much pain, and the only choice that any father or mother could do. Perfect, from the beggining until the end.

    It's not very easy to understand but in the end scene everything becomes clear and you realize it is one of the most beautiful movies of history. So powerful

    She still did an incredibly cruel thing to both the daughter and the father. Didn't tell him it'd happen which is completely cruel to him and creating a life that'd die so horribly. She shouldn't be considered a hero.

      @VenomKpp the movie considers both perspectives i think. Her husband disagrees with her choice while she embraces her future and everything that comes with it. Maybe her choice was already made.
      Also if you go to a childrens hospital and ask children who are about to die if they wish they'd never been born what do you think their answer would be

      Why are you so disapproving with her choice? So you don't like dogs because they will die sooner, and yes, I made this analogy. It's all about having this magic mixture of pain and joy with the loved ones, that's the poetry of life, we all gonna die sooner or later, but the ride is the beauty, to share life with someone special no matter what will happen. She was hooked, that was the future she can not have changed, even if she wanted to.

      She’s not a real person. Her decision is part of the story.

    • VenomKpp

      @Bob Buchko Yeah but her child didn't have a fulfilling life, she was what maybe a teen when she got sick. You know full well if you have a child it's going to get sick and in the hospital for a couple months to years slowly dying..and you'd still make that choice as well as not telling the father?

      @Tiago Matheus I thought the moments she saw were already set in stone. It's why she was able to call the Chinese general.

      Jesus Ramirez Romo So $203 million dollars isn’t much to you? It had a budget of $47 million meaning it made over $150 million in profit. That’s more than a lot of even mainstream sci-fi movies
      Not only that but critics absolutely loved

      @Fernando Amato lol yeah because that's simple to just accept. I'm sure you know how it feels to be told by your wife that your only child will die in the near future from an incurable disease. Also we'll split up because of it.

      Tbh, I don’t really think that change was even possible. If you think about it, Banks doesn’t SEE the future. She’s experiencing it, whether she’s in the present or past. Time isn’t linear in this “language”. When she kept having “visions” they weren’t really visions because they already happened. Banks is basically living in a spectrum. Where past, present and future are all one.
