"Bittersweet Symphony" plays as Danny quits his job at the end of the movie. It may seem like a goof, since the scene is set in 1993 and the song was released in 1997, but it's actually not. The song does not play as within the story; it plays as a soundtrack over the end scene. Thus, there is no conflict within the events of the film. See more »
A compelling tribute to the flawed individuals we all are
It took me a while to let go of the 'that's not the type of dwarfism he had' problem, but when I was finally able to do so, I was able to appreciate the story much more. It touched (lightly, admittedly, but also in an 'everyman' (sic) kind of way) on the themes of self-belief, self-control, and self-congratulation, and how thin the line between them is. One false move can see you fall on your face, or require you to push someone else out of your way; and we never know when that false move may occur or what may prompt it to happen.
