Amazon Prime’s Bliss comes with a unique sci-fi story that tells his take on the simulation world. Well, given the trailer and all, the movie might sound confusing, but not if you get the main idea right. So, as we explain, do not scratch your head much, just follow the motives of the characters we will tell. You may understand what we are talking about. So telling a story of a working man being told his world is part of the simulation and discovering the real world out there. Here’s our take on Bliss as the ending is well explained.
Bliss is directed by Mike Cahill. Owen Wilson and Salma Hayek star in the film. Two completely different characters with Wilson as the awake man Greg while Salma plays the role of a woman born from Greg’s vivid imagination. But it turns out that everything about her is real and that the world Greg is in is fake. So what’s going on here? What is this Bliss world? If Bliss is real, what about the world Greg is in? Everything that happens at the end of Bliss starts now.
Bliss plot summary
Bliss tells the story of Greg Wittle, who instead of working in his office, spends time sketching from memory. Recently divorced Gregg has a hard time giving himself too much medicine while also being yelled at by his boss for wasting time. Soon the time comes when he is late for work and is fired. Greg’s boss fires him and after an argument, Greg accidentally kills his boss. Nervous and scared, Greg leaves the office to a bar across the street from the building and meets Isabel, who somewhat resembles the girl he constantly draws in the pictures.
Isabel knows what Greg has done and tells him about this simulation world he lives in. At first he doesn’t believe anything she says until he sees her using telekinetic powers, which leads to Isabel changing his boss’s death. So proving it’s suicide. As shocked as Greg looks, he definitely wants to know more about it, and Isabel agrees to teach him. By selling Greg’s phone, she buys yellow crystals that help her manipulate reality.
Isabel and Greg go on quite an adventure with them until they eventually get into trouble with the police. Meanwhile, Gregg’s daughter comes looking for her father. Someone Isabel wants Greg to avoid because she claims she’s not real. On the other hand, Greg wants to master this and wants to know, if not this, what the real world is. So it takes Isabel to introduce him to blue crystals that she believes will transport them to the real world.
Bliss Ending explained
The blissful world
Greg and Isabel consume the newly brought blue crystals and transport themselves to the world Isabel likes to call Bliss. Greg wakes up in a room where many other people like him are tethered to computer equipment. Isabel soon makes her presence felt. Before entering reality, Isabel had told Greg that the drawings he was making were not something imaginative of his mind. It is his real life outside of this simulation, and it is what it represents. Greg in real life, is a scientist along with Isabel, and they test Brain Box made by Isabell to study alternate realities of the world. Plus how it can affect the human brain.
Isabel takes him on a journey through this world, and it looks like his paintings, but Greg doesn’t remember anything. Nothing about his privileged life here or meeting the friends Isabel introduced him to. Anway Greg asks Isabel to publish her research and end it once and for all. She agrees, but once she asks him if anything was left behind. That’s when Greg remembers his daughter and stumbles upon one of her simulations. She asks him to choose a word that means more to him.
Choosing the world
Like his daughter’s glitch, the reality of the simulation begins to wreak havoc in the real world for Isabel and Greg. So Isabel thinks they are still a bit stuck in simulation. To fully escape, they need another dose of the blue crystals. So they go back to the simulation world for the last time, but a fight ensues between Isabel and his dealer. This leads her to kill him to grab the crystal and run away from the police with Greg. They realize that they only have one crystal in their hand. So only one can go back in time.
Greg initially asks her to kill him because no one could die in a simulation. But when he hears his daughter come to his aid, he changes his mind. He gives the crystal away to Isabell and the reality she likes to live in. The perfect Bliss world while he will live with his daughter. Greg believes he would like to live in a world full of problems, no matter how bad it is. Isabel goes back and distracts the police, while Greg escapes and eventually goes to rehab. So believe that his daughter is real and later reunited with her.
