Made me reflect on insecurity: was the family better off without Gregor? He was the sole provider, but after he's gone the father is more active and the sister seems to blossom. They are looking for a better apartment than the one Gregor chose. Everyone is happy when he finally dies. Sort of a reverse It's A Wonderful Life.
