Closer (2004)

Ending / spoiler

(4 votes)

Larry and Anna end up back together, although Anna looks really depressed in the last close up. Daniel and Alice seemingly are back together, until Alice dumps him in the last scenes. Alice did sleep with Larry, and Alice's real name is Jane. She returns to New York City, and walks down the street.

Continuity mistake: When Daniel is just about to leave Larry's office at the end of the film, Daniel is facing away from the door. In the next shot he is facing the other way. (01:25:55)

Suggested correction: No he's not.

The mistake is valid. After Larry says "Buster", we see Dan standing at an angle with his back towards the opening of the door and doorknob and his left side closest to the door. In the next shot, he's turned more than 90° so that his right side is now closest to the door opening and doorknob.

Alice: Is it because she's successful?
Dan: No. It's because... she doesn't need me.

More quotes from Closer

Question: Is there a connection or special meaning when Dan asks 'Alice' during their last fight who she really is, and 'Alice' answers him "I'm nobody," and the fact that she is hiding her true identity as Jane Jones?

Answer: Yes there is a connection, but the exact meaning of it is deliberately left ambiguous as to why Alice/Jane kept her true identity hidden. It is up to the audience to interpret why she did this.

Answer: Anna says that Alice has "had quite a life" (after she read Dan's book that was based on Alice). Presumably Alice has been through difficult situations: abuse, neglect, etc. She considers herself a "nobody" and enjoys lying as a form of control. Which is why she never told Dan her real name, or everything about herself. She could never trust anybody completely. She also says "I'm the one who leaves." She prefers to leave men before they can leave her.
