Well, it's more like a really ambiguous ending. You are not sure which one is the real reality when Taeko suddenly wakes up in that hotel room to the one where she is tied to the bed. I don't really get what happened when Gozo was revealed or what he represented, but Sayuri was the one in execution and not Mitsuko as we see in the beggining... From her expression, I just kind of guess that she is being liberated. The intro of the movie started out with the line "It was like I was born on the execution stand, anyway." The beginning is tied with the end. It's just the inbetween is really frazzled.

I don't know.. it was disturbing enough to keep me interested. I was like, "What the hell is this?!!" *clicks for next part*

well the reality is the bedroom.
for those less open ones ending is when she wakes up in a hotel room.
and for those with openness it's in her childhood home bedroom where her limbs are taken away.

coz the reality is the one where all of the characters exist in order to make conflicts - and that would be Sayuri next to Gozo being massacred by Yuji-kun.

I would really agree with funnyturtle about ambiguous ending, coz any1 can choose his own ending.

I prefer the circus part that takes place in her mind [/me fav].
