The Piano

After Stewart (Sam Neill) cuts Ada's (Holly Hunter's) finger off, he tries to rape her, but stops when he realizes he will never possess her. He lets her go; She is sailing away on a ship with her piano, when the piano falls overboard, she puts her foot into the rope tied to the piano and goes down with it, choosing to drown herself. Then at the last moment, she frees herself and decides she wants to live, and swims back to the surface. The final voiceover is hers; she is learning how to talk, she is still playing the piano with a prosthetic finger, and she is with George Baines (Harvey Keitel).
