The French master of suspense Claude Chabrol returns with the razor-sharp, darkly seductive, "A Girl Cut in Two." Gabrielle Deneige (Ludivine Sagnier of "Swimming Pool") is an independent, ambitious TV weather girl torn between her love of a distinguished author several decades her senior (Francois Berléand), and the attentions of a headstrong, potentially unstable young suitor (Benoit Magimel). An unspoken past between the two men heightens tensions, and though she's initially certain of her love for one them, the see-saw demands and whims of both men keep confusing - and darkening - matters. Before long she's encountering emotional and societal forces well beyond her control, inexorably leading to a shocking clash of violence and passion. Inspired by the sensational Gilded Age murder of Madison Square Garden architect Stanford White, "A Girl Cut in Two" is trademark Chabrol: fiendishly entertaining and impossible to shake.
