I was watching one of my favorite movies, Ink, the other day, and it occurred to me that even after seeing it several times, there are still some parts that are unclear to me. Unfortunately, because it is not "mainstream", there is very little discussion on it, so finding answers about story and production is rather difficult.
Near the end, when Ink and the storyteller are talking, they have the following exchange (Possible Spoiler?):
Storyteller: Incredible Ink. You hide yourself ashamed... but you can't see how beautiful you are.
Ink: I don't understand. Why are you here? What have you done?
Storyteller: I'm here for you Ink. I'm here for you.
Ink: Why? Why? What do you want from me? I am ruined. Why can't you see that?
Storyteller: Because I choose to see you... for what you were intended to be... not for what you've become. When will you recognize her? Has your mind become so corrupted?
Storyteller: This is what you could become. This is what you will choose to be. You don't have to choose this.
Ink: I don't understand. I don't understand.
Storyteller: You know my name... but why?
And so, my question is, WHY does Ink know her name? Is it simply because she was well-known in the alternate plane, or is there more to it?
is there a link between John's dead wife and the storyteller?
