    i had a chance to talk to the director personally while he is travelling the US for his new movie debut "spring summer fall winter, and spring." he explained the ending in this way. the man does go into the vagina, back into the womb as it were. and the woman becomes one with nature.

    Re: more spoilers

    I personally think that the ending represents that both of the characters have lost in this man and woman battle. The first part of the ending show us that the man got lost in the forest, which was later represented as the virgina or the woman. Somehow represent that the man got traped in this woman's world. And the second part of the ending show us that the woman (seems dead) in the water, after the man entered into her virgina. So I think it represents that even though she got the man, she doesn't really got all the control.

    So basically they are just eating up each other.
