OUATIA is in fact a never-ending story.Immediately after the famous smile of Noodles you could see Eve entering her apartment and you could hear "God Bless America " also sung by David Bailey and his rich friends in 1968.

End and beginning are perfectly pasted, mixed and perfumed by Opium smoke.This film is a  circle.A ring of Moebius where we are on the two sides in the same time.

So Sergio was also perfectly free to cut the ring where he wanted: after the garbage, after the meeting with Deborah 'son, after in fact every scenes:  the circle allows that the beginning be placed immediately after the end. .

...what a wonderful image...
I had never conceived the movie as just one of many possible 'cuts in a circle', have to admit I was perfectly satisfied with the poetry I was able to grasp with the 'cut' we all know.
But now, who knows, maybe a different cut would have allowed even more poetry to rise from the story...

...by the way, Aaronson, I'm really happy to read you again in this forum...
