* DiedHappilyEverAfter: The ending appears to be this. The old woman lies down on the boat. She wakes, and sees something. She goes running off, and ages backwards into a young girl again. She runs up to her father, looking as he did all those decades ago, and embraces him.



* SuicideBySea: If one takes the action in the opening scene literally, the man does this. There is also the possibility that the whole cartoon is a metaphor for death and rememberance and the opening scene is simply symbolic of the father dying.

* CallBack: After the credits roll, there's a shot of a spinning bicycle wheel. One of the first shots shows the wheels of the father's and daughter's bikes, perfectly in sync.

''Father and Daughter'' is a 2000 animated short film from UsefulNotes/TheNetherlands, directed by Michael Dudok de Wit.

A father and daughter go bicycling on the Dutch coast. They stop at a bluff overlooking the sea. The father and daughter get off their bikes. The man hugs his little girl goodbye, climbs down the bluff to a boat, and then rows away, never to be seen again. Time passes, and the daughter revisits the bluff again and again. Decades roll by, she grows to adulthood, she has a family, the sea coast at the bottom of the bluff is drained to form a Dutch [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polder polder]], and the woman ages into an old lady--and still she goes to the bluff, looking out into the distance for her father.
