After watching the movie, I was so affected, both by the pre- WWII references in TCS, and the surely dissatisfying ending to a fan.

But after some analysis, I actually changed my mind about the ending. And I propose a new way of looking at the film.

If you are/were dissatisfied with the ending, I invite you to read this piece I wrote.

Yes, shameless plug.

(as a warning, it is a fairly academic but also subjective analysis.....)

That was well-written, YellowDuckie and I applaud you for taking the time and patience to write the analysis. The ending may not be meaningless or bad, technically speaking, but I still don't like it. In fact, I greatly dislike it, but oh well, it's all done now. Ed and Al are living in a dangerous time now, away from the Rockbells. I love my fairy tales and there's always the manga to make things more "Disney-like", maybe tongue.gif

The world is not fair and that's what has always been said in the anime, still, it would've been more satisfying to see that something fair actually happened to Ed and Al (Al having got back together with Ed is one of the more fair things that could happen, but it would've been even better to have kept the family together).

I don't feel it said this at all. I think its just what you said.

And they did keep the family together, the family being Ed and Al. I remember all the whining before the movie came out. That's what EVERYONE wanted. "Ed and Al REUNITED" That's EXACTLY what happened.
