Through My Window, a Spanish movie available on Netflix, is the love tale of Ares and Raquel, who must overcome the difficulties of teenage love, parental disapproval, and the emotional inaccessibility of the male lead. Marcal Fores is the film’s director, and Ariana Godoy and Eduard Sola are its writers.
Through My Window Ending
Through My Window’s conclusion is what we like to refer to as a “one-stroke finish,” in which everything is resolved in the final five minutes of a single narration with no discernible journey.
Raquel informs Ares that she would be waiting for him at the prom, demonstrating that she has made the courageous decision to give their relationship a shot. Before he meets her, Ares gets into a fight with Yoshi when he first arrives, falls face down in the pool as a result of an accident, and the chlorine shocks him. He is brought to the hospital, where Raquel and Ares’s family wait while he receives treatment. As a result of the danger of losing their son, Raquel approaches his family and asks them to reconsider their relationship. They agree.
Following his recovery, Ares and Raquel are seen getting back together and spending the summer together before Ares departs for medical school. Raquel eventually completes and publishes her book. There is a happy ending for everyone when Artemis admits his love with Claudia and Daniela begins dating Apollo openly. Yoshi, Raquel’s best buddy, is one loose thread that the film neglects to resolve. Raquel, whom we see he professed his affections to, rushes into his arms and claims that he is the one person who is ever there for her after she assumes Ares won’t attend prom. Before she can continue, he tells her about Ares. Therefore, the decision rests with the spectator.
We may presume that Yoshi got over his affections for Raquel because the creators of Through My Window gave the book such a tidy ending, and since the two are still best friends while he is succeeding on his own, we can draw this conclusion. The epitome of a wonderful conclusion.
What We Think Of Through My Window Ending?
The tone of Through My Window is intended to be sharp and dramatic, with a lighthearted teenage love angst feel. The good girl, the bad boy with a tragic history, the girl’s male best friend who is secretly in love with her, and the second-best friend who is the heroine’s complete opposite and provides comic relief for the other romantic plotline are all present in this. One has heard and seen innumerable adaptations of these tales. Therefore, when someone tunes in to see another one of these, they are not expecting for surprise or an unusual plot. They simply want some swoon-worthy moments, some feel-good filler, and a romantic fantasy.
Any such novel should culminate on a high from the characters’ journey, which is why Through My Window’s conclusion was such a letdown because there was no journey. Because it was expected, they fell in love. He overcame his emotional obstacles because that’s what he was intended to do. It was her duty to forgive the person and accept him back, so she does. Because it is supposed to, everything comes together in the end. Both the plot and the characters are flat.
The Kissing Booth and the To all the boys I’ve loved before trilogy are two of the most well-liked book-to-movie adaptations of similar teenage romances that have appeared on Netflix. The similarities between the characters and the overall pattern are both clear. With the title Through My Window, Netflix made no novel attempts. The plot was as simple as it could be, which is actually not a problem for this kind of movie, but Through My Window fails because the characters lack personality. The problem is that we already know how they are. Even though we have seen it before and it is not surprising, we still need to see it once again in order to support them.
Ares simply didn’t seem moody enough, and perhaps this is just my opinion, but he seemed more like someone who needed support in working through his family’s pain than like a girlfriend he could mistreat. It may be claimed that these movies shouldn’t be compared, but isn’t that inevitable given that they haven’t even tried to construct a unique tale with unique characters and have instead just thrown all the clichés at the audience one after the other?
We genuinely believe that Through My Window ought to have concluded with Ares in the hospital and saved the remainder of their story for a sequel. That would have been the more sensible choice. Even if the movie wasn’t boring, the hurried pace of the climax made it the worst. A narrative that never goes out of vogue, it was a tragic mess. As a result, we’ll keep an eye out for further films that, hopefully, execute their similar themes better.
Mar al Fors is the director of the Spanish romantic drama Through My Window from 2022. Netflix is streaming it.
