The final scene in Tim Burton’s ‘Big Fish’

The final scene in Tim Burton’s ‘Big Fish’ when Albert Finney’s ailing father figure is being carried into the river by his son, surrounded by all the fantastical people he had fashioned who live in his memories, a character who lived a life of myth, a vision of what he wanted it to be when he was a younger man (played with innocent wit by Ewan MacGregor)… being carried into the river to finally become the big fish that he always wanted to be and knew in his heart he was…. Well, that scene really packs a punch.
