Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

Li Mu Bai kills Jade Fox, but during the fight he is hit by one of her poison darts. With his last breath he tells Shu Lien that he loves her. Jen throws herself off Wudan mountain, like the man in the legend Lo told her about.

Continuity mistake: In the final scene in the cave, the protagonist walks under the rain and becomes wet. After the whole poisonous needle thing, the camera cuts back to her and she is completely dry. (01:41:15)

Question: What is the significance of the very last shot? We see see Jen (Zhang Ziyi) flying into the clouds and then a mountain/forest shot, in which nothing happens, for about a second and then the credits roll.

Answer: It is an open question. Interpretation of the last scene is really left to the audience. But to those of you who completely missed the whole point of the jump, it refers to the "Legend of the Mountain" as told to Jen by Lo "Dark Cloud". He told her that if a person makes a wish and jumps from the mountain, the wish will be granted and, occasionally, the jumper's life will be spared. "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" is actually a fourth book in the series of five books. In the book, Jen survives the fall, but never returns to Lo, fearing her parents shame and prosecution. Popular opinion seems to be that Jen was in fact in love with Li Mu Bai and the jump was an attempt of escaping the live lover towards the dead one.
