The Ending -- AH!
This movie walked the line between a comedy and a tragedy. The reviews said Angela took up with Belmondo, but in reality, it was a one night thing at the very end. Most of the movie was very ligth hearted and I hated how they brushed aside the disgusting behavior at the end.
Belmondo is supposed to be this guy's best friend- what a lousy best friend to be constantly hitting on his girlfriend!
Finally, the couple survives until the very last second when Angela impulsively sleeps with Belmondo, ironically the night her bf relents and wants to have a baby. If she truly loved him, why did she behave in such a twisted manner, and how could he shrug it off and sleep with her right after his friend did? The film comments that the foolish behavior starts because they love each other - this is no sign of love! What is the poor baby going to hear: your mom slept with both of us in the same night so we don't know who's your father. No biggie.
please comment on your thoughts on the ending and Godard's portrayal of women.
