The last scene was a disappointment because it had a chance to offer a way out, to show the possibility for an affirmation of life in spite of --the affirmation of life precisely Because Of -- the Suffering that it depicted -- suffering that is all too true and is propagated by the empty consumer society that it depicts -- It had a chance to end on a high note, of this affirmation of the carrying on of the human heart alongside all this suffering. This was the affirmation when he returned to see the girl who he had taken care of, and when he was back in his classroom at the end -- to the audience's surprise. Anyways, we can imagine that this was indeed the case, as it was before the final shot, when suddenly the students weren't there and the chairs were strewn about -- There must still be beauty in this world -- there still is. And that is the thread of hope that still runs through all the tragedy in the world.
