This article discusses the ending of the Indonesian Netflix film Geez & Ann, so it will contain major spoilers. 

Throughout the film, Geez and Ann are separated by a single problem — Geez’s mother. She’s adamant that Geez follows her youth, her educational path, which includes studying in Berlin. She’s also bitter about Geez’s father and takes it out on her son. Throughout the film, despite it being obvious that the mother is the problem, Ann does not like Geez lying to her — she also wants him to live to every promise he makes, but Geez is constantly derailed to deliver consistent romantic gestures because his mother intervenes.

With the constant heartbreaks, Ann tells Geez never to contact her again so that she can forget about him.

Netflix’s Geez & Ann – the ending explained

In the end, Geez heads to an internship under the guidance of his mother, and Ann continues her studying at a local educational institute (she wants to be a doctor). About four years passes, and Ann has helped a young man named Bayu run his coffee shop; there are hints of romance between them, and Bayu has clearly supported Ann through her studies. Even her friends are egging her on to make a move on the man. It feels like an ideal answer after the heartbreak of her and Geez.

With Geez finishing his internship and all his studies, he tells his mother he’s done everything she has asked and wants his guitar back. After an emotional argument, the mother and son finally have an understanding with each other

During Ann’s graduation, Geez turns up and watches Ann get her accolades; however, during Ann’s speech, she thanks Bayu, and Geez is crestfallen. He walks out of the graduation ceremony with his flowers. He always promised to be there for her graduation.

After the ceremony, Bayu takes a leap of faith and proposes to Ann — she says yes, making a promise to be his wife.

What happens next?

When Ann returns home, she sees a letter and flowers left by Geez. He asks her to meet him at the treehouse where they once spent time together. When she reaches the house, memories of them are scattered around the place, and Ann gets emotional and overwhelmed with the situation. Geez shows up, and he declares his love for her — he tells her that he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about her and that he did what she asked, but that he always promised to be here for her graduation.

But Ann sobs and makes a grandstanding point — how can she break her promise to Bayu after such importance on promises in the past? She tells Geez he was too late, even though it’s clear to the audience that she’s completely in love with him — it’s been four years, and they still feel the same.

The ending of Geez & Ann leaves it for the audience to decide what happened next: there’s plenty of narration about how there was no closure, and the answer only came when Geez returned. The film shows Ann opening up her memory box for her and Geez, and she plays music from an old iPod, and she looks at peace. Writing on the screen tells the audience that some stories have to end for new ones to begin on a better note.

We can assume that because she’s opening up old memories, that they finally got back together.

    As one of the scriptwriters, I can assure you, the story is not over yet, since the movie covers only the 1st book of Geez & Ann trilogy. We made the ending to have the door opened for sequels wide enough. However, we also tried to give enough impression that there’s already a closure present. We believe the story is not just a romance but also a coming of age tale.

    Once again, appreciate greatly for writing the explanation of the ending.

    Did not like the ending but some people can’t wait they listen to others cause its easy I feel the young man is better off without her sad though but to say yes to someone when your heart is not there is wrong and misleading but things can be fixed I hope if she loves Geez that is
