Regarding the ending (general comment, no spoilers)...
There were enough flashbacks and dream sequences that the ending was (in my mind, at least) ambiguous no matter which version I watched. Even with the so-called "American ending", I wasn't at all sure that we were seeing what was really supposed to be happenning or if we were just seeing a dream sequence of what the main character was imagining. In fact, I will tell you that I always assumed it was a dream sequence.
For that reason, NEITHER ending wrapped up the movie completely to my way of thinking. And that was just fine.
BTW, I love this film and bought the BD last year at a local shop. Fortunately, I got the AVC version (long before I ever found this thread).
