In the 154-minute version of the film, Salvatore happens upon a young girl who so resembles the teenage Elena that she must be a relative. Following the teen, Salvatore is reunited with his long-lost love — the girl’s mother, and shares one night making love to her. Afterward, he strives to rekindle their romance, and while she clearly wishes it were possible, she rejects his entreaties, choosing to remain with her family and leave their romance in the past. We also learn from Elena that the reason they lost touch was because Alfredo asked her not to see him again, fearing that Salvatore’s romantic fulfillment would only destroy what Alfredo sees as Salvatore’s destiny, to be successful. Alfredo tried to convince her that if she loved Salvatore, she must leave him for his own good, but she was unsure, and left Salvatore a note, with an address where she could be reached and a promise of undying love and loyalty. Salvatore never found her note, and thus never finds her, not for more than thirty years.

154分钟导演剪辑版的影片中,Toto在回到西西里岛参加Alfredo的葬礼后,遇到了一个小女孩,这个女孩跟年轻的Elena非常象,可以肯定是Elena的一个亲戚。最后Toto遇到了小女孩的母亲,也就是年轻时爱慕的Elena

他与Elena共度一夜。Toto想跟Elena重新开始一段感情,但Elena拒绝了,她选择维护自己的家庭,将这段感情遗忘在过去。

同时Elena还道出一些往事,之所以她和Toto在年轻时失去了联系,是因为Alfredo告诉她,不要再见Toto,否则Toto的命运将跟自己一样,不会有成功的人生。Alfredo告诉Elena,如果她爱Toto的话,就离开他。

Elena并不确定这一切是否是对的,她给Toto留了个纸条,上面有她的地址,并且告诉Toto,自己的感情将是忠诚与不灭的。但Toto没有发现她的纸条,在以后的30年里,Elena就消失了。

 

It then ends with Salvatore returning to Rome and viewing the film reel that Alfredo left for him, tears in his eyes. The mood is far more bittersweet, as Salvatore sees Alfredo as both the source of great love in his life — and great loss.

在影片的最后,Toto回到了罗马,看着Alfredo留给他的电影片段,眼里全是泪水。这个版本的结尾比原版的要悲伤的多,在Toto生命中,Alfredo不仅仅是自己的挚友,他的死亡更是一种巨大的伤痛。
