Breaking the Waves

Bess goes onto the ship and kills herself thinking Jan is dead, but Jan miraculously recovers. When her body is being buried, there is sand in the coffin, as Jan had removed her body, which he dumps in the sea. Bells start to ring in the morning from heaven.

V Rajiv

Continuity mistake: When Bess waits for Jan to arrive by helicopter there are some long strands hanging over her face. The camera cuts briefly to the helicopter and back to Bess, and the strands are gone. (00:02:30)
