Brazil (1985)

Ending / spoiler

(1 vote)

Sam escapes, brings down the Ministry, and lives happily ever after with Jill. But then it is revealed that his escape was all a dream. But only in the director's cut--sometimes the movie ends with the happy ending on broadcast television--Terry Gilliam fought this version of the film, but some copies are still out there floating around.

Revealing mistake: When Lowry first arrives at Buttle's flat to return the cheque, he hears a cough and turns to see a man smoking a cigarette, half hidden by a column. When he blows a cloud of smoke it is easy to see that it comes from a tube next to his mouth. He isn't even exhaling at the time.

Question: Why is this film called Brazil?

Douglas Bell

Chosen answer: Because of the reoccurring use of the song "Aquarela do Brasil" by Ary Barroso. The song's common English title is "Brazil". And at the end, when Sam is sitting in the chair, he starts to sing "Brazil".
