9. The ending that breaks your heart
The most haunting part of the film is undoubtedly the ending. We see Rose lying in her warm bed. Just like how Jack wanted her to be. We see Rose in photographs that were taken after she fulfilled every single thing in her bucket list of things she wanted to do with Jack. As the camera pans, we see Rose in her bed. She is either dreaming or she died…
Then we see Titanic underwater but it morphs into daytime and like a dream, the camera enters the grand staircase, which is described as the most beautiful feature in Titanic’s indoors, and all those perished on the Titanic is seen waiting there for her, along with Jack who is standing near the clock. Rose comes up in a white gown, which symbolizes her as an angel and she embraces Jack. It makes you cry tears of joy as you will see her reunite with Jack. This scene is heartbreaking because you actually witness all those who died on Titanic including Mr. Andrews, the father who had a daughter in his arms (as shown at the beginning), the old lady with a baby, Trudy, the violinists, Capt Smith etc.
10. The song that still echoed across the world
When the film was released two decades, along with the visuals, this song became an overnight sensation. Almost every program, every medium, and programmes played this song. Listening to this song gave out a sensation of romance and grief. Celine Dion’s voice and Horner’s music echoed across generations. When she says “every night in my dreams, I see you” this could either refer to Rose’s feelings towards Jack or Dion’s fantasy about Titanic as a magnificent ship that didn’t deserve its fate.
