La fille coupee en deux / The Girl Cut in Two (2007) DVD9
Decisions, decisions: Given the choice between an older, highly regarded star of the French literary set and a young, impetuous heir to a pharmaceutical fortune, what's a girl to do? In A Girl Cut In Two, director Claude Chabrol's latest takedown of the bourgeoisie, that's actually a trick question. Because when you're an upstart TV weathergirl who still lives with her mother, and you're seeing men with the wealth and privilege to toy with your affections, you may find that your options are severely limited. As the title implies, the heroine, played by the luscious Ludivine Sagnier (Swimming Pool), is torn between men who ultimately hold her fate in their hands, despite her bewitching effect on both of them. Fusing acrid black comedy with twistiness of one of his famed Hitchcockian thrillers, Chabrol patiently—really too patiently—reveals the conflicting forces that lead Sagnier into trouble, and they have as much to do with class as they do with matters of the heart.
