I know who I am. And after all these years, there’s a victory in that.
I found it interesting how Cuaron, in addition to Ryan finally choosing to live, decided to show Ryan overcoming each of the elements - she is running out of air, fire breaks out, her capsule falls into water, she has difficulty walking on Earth.

And we move on. (x)
