Wow, that was pretty depressing.

But why's the guy smiling at the end? He just got finished telling us how he feels his life is devoid of any meaning, and he even quit his job. Even the fact that, in the final scene, he waited for the trains to pass and she didn't means that he's been left behind...so what's there to be happy about?

And who's the chick with the glasses and pigtails? Was it supposed to the surfer chick grown up? Her life looked like shit, too.
