Paul leaves room which operate woman who his neighbor sings song. Her voice is heard even in entrance of residence. Paul leaves the residence and goes to car. Vale begs him, vale loves Paul, he loves Paul's body and he offers himself body to Paul. Paul escapes.

Jean Luc Godard makes "Everyman for himself' in 1980, after political movie experiments. This is fourth movie of Godard I have watched.

The movie is a critic on industrial society what was established wildly after 1929, world wars and 1968 youth demonstrations and industrial cinema what turns back to strainer telling.

Someone just cares about themselves economic benefits. Someone cares about just themselves personal happiness and someone cares about to alive with women they love in.

Wagons just carry the vessels. Only bankers are independent. Teacher, singer, student or fallen women are not independent, they are not free. Street gangs catch fallen woman Isabelle and they say only bankers were free, only they were independent. "But we are not bankers. So, Isabelle, we don't want your all money we just want half of" they said.

And Isabelle wants her sister's half money who will work as fallen woman.

Women lose their bodies and prides, men lose their identity for easy sex. Men become gay (According to Godard), ensest relations, child pornography, prostitution and crimes increase day by day. People accuse blackbirds what joined to city life of people 2 century ago.

The movie begins with a long sky sequence. We see green fields, forests and lakes in beginning. Movie darkens every moment during time. Tension increases. Pornography increases. Violence increases. Paul can't be stay alive with some women; his ex-wife, ex-girlfriend (Denise) and ex-fallen woman (Isabelle). And movie finishes while Paul's ex-wife and his little daughter walking to darkness.
