'Love' ending

Gaspar Noe's Love follows the story of Murphy. He, along with his girlfriend Electra, experience their love through their sexual adventures. Murphy is an American art student who lives in Paris and he meets Electra there. They realise that both of them are experimental when it comes to sexual intimacy and thus they go on to discover the different faces of bedroom fantasies. 

While their emotional relationship keeps getting strained, they are becoming better and more adventurous physically. After some time, Electra invites a young friend of hers named Omi to their sexual intimacy. After this, Murphy starts a relationship with Omi as well, behind Electra's back. Unfortunately for all the three characters, Omi gets pregnant and Murphy and Electra fall apart because of this.

Love ending explained

The last shot of Love on Netflix is Murphy hugging an 18-month-old child. This shows that after all that he went through along with Electra, he chose the life of fatherhood over his love. In the most twisted way possible, what Murphy and Electra had was indeed love. 

As per Gasper Noé's interview with a leading news portal, Murphy's love for Electra allowed him to discover the meanest parts of his personality. Noé claims that love is an obsession with tunnel vision and that a love story can last long, but not passion, as it can be exhausting. Thus Murphy gets exhausted of his passion for Electra and chooses the baby, but his love for Electra remains intact.
