So now that we have seen all of the films competing in our little Venice Days section, we have to speak up. Here is a precise reconstruction of a dialogue between Simon and Sven that totally happened exactly this way:
Sven: Hey Simon! I was totally fed up with [insert name of film here]’s ending. There was just way to little self castration going on.
Simon: I completely agree. If only anybody could have come up with alternative endings to those films.
Sven: But who could do something like that?
Simon (after 5 hours of deliberation and chin stroking): Hey Sven! Maybe WE should do that!
Sven: What a great suggestion, Simon! Also, I think you are very handsome.
Simon: Wow, thanks Sven, you too.
So here we go.
La Prima Luce: The boy or the dad, perferrably both, get run over by a bus. The wife then accuses the bus of being a „violent bus“.
El Desconocido: In the end it is revealed that Carlos was behind it after all, deceiving both his family and the audience, the son of a bitch.
Arianna: Arianna is sitting at her selfhelpgroup about sexuality, when the door opens and Marla Singer from Fight Club enters the room and asks: „Is this prostate cancer?“
Lolo: The fight Lolo and Jean-Rene are having escelates quicker than the fight from Anchorman and the streets run red with blood. Then Julie Delpy makes a period joke.
Early Winter: They reenact the last words from Eyes wide Shut, when Nicole Kidman turns to Tom Cruise, saying: „I do love you, and you know there is something very important we need to do as soon as possible.“ – „What’s that?“ – „Fuck.“
La memoria del agua: Javier is walking through the corn field. He doesn’t notice that about 200 Meters away from him, there is a bus coming towards him at full speed, mowing down the corn. Also, his dead kid is the bus driver.
Underground Fragrance: When it cuts to black, it is revealed that the whole film was just a commercial for Dolce & Gabana’s new perfume Underground Fragrance.
Viva la Sposa: The boy, Salvatore, stands in the bathroom putting on lipstick. Suddenly, Eddie Redmayne steps out of the shadows and aks Salvatore if he can borrow it..
Island City: The film ends after Episode 2. Instead of Episode 3, we get 30 minutes of weird Bollywood dancing.
Klezmer: Witus and Rozalka are sitting in the forest, crying. Out of nowhere, on a beautiful horse, Jamie Foxx appears dressed as a cowboy. He looks at them and briefly states: „Sorry folks, wrong movie.“ Then his horse does a little dance before he leaves the screen.
As I Open my Eyes: Farah and her mother sit at the window, start singing, when suddenly a bus jumps up ten stories, destroys the outside wall, and runs them both over. On the side of the bus is an advert for Farah’s new album ‚Duri duri‘.
