“Gone Girl”: Why the ending in the film is even nastier than in the book

The ending of the “Gone Girl” novel differs from the film in small, crucial ways. The effect is therefore very different …

“Gone Girl” runs today (Saturday) from 8:15 pm on tv. To mark the occasion, we are publishing this article today, which is based on a similar, older text.

As you can imagine, in the article we reveal the end of “Gone Girl”, or rather: the end of the film and novel.

Gillian Flynn wrote both the bestseller “Gone Girl” and the script for the thriller masterpiece by David Fincher, in which Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike play the leading roles. Even so, the stories differ.

The end in the movie

At the end of the film, Nick (Affleck) decides to stay married to the returned Amy (Pike) even though he knows she is a murderer. He wants to protect the child she’s carrying in her stomach after she got pregnant with his frozen sperm.

On television, Nick and Amy present themselves as a couple who have had a difficult time, wanting to stick together and work on their mutual relationship – that’s nasty because the truth is of course exactly the opposite of the staged couple’s happiness and it doesn’t look like Amy still will be punished for their misdeeds. In contrast to the book, where Amy doesn’t get off scot-free.

The end of the book

Two crucial details are different in the novel: On the one hand, the mother of Desi, who was brutally murdered by Amy (played by Neil Patrick Harris in the film), is firmly convinced that Amy is the murderer. The police don’t believe the mother, but that doesn’t mean she wants to give up. She could convict Amy at some point – so there is hope that the film does not allow.

In addition, Amy experiences a psychological attack from Nick in the book, which is missing in the film FMovies. She asks him why he not only stays with her, but is even nice to her again – and he gives her to understand that he pities her. After all, it is hard for Amy to wake up every morning and face the fact that she is a thoroughly depraved person. Ouch.

“Gone Girl” is running on tv again, but is also in the Netflix catalog. The unabridged FSK 16 version can be seen there. tv had to shorten the film to be able to show it before 10 p.m., which is why the bloody murder scene in bed with Pike and Patrick Harris was somewhat defused. But Harris’s bloody orgasm is violent because it is eruptive and brutal.
