A GIRL CUT IN TWO

Synopsis:

Friday, September 5 – Thursday, September 11

A GIRL CUT IN TWO

François Berléand (The Chorus) stars as a jaded novelist and married "ladies man" whose latest conquest is TV weathergirl Gabrielle (Ludivine Sagnier, Swimming Pool). At once naïve and unstoppable, Gabrielle doesn't need to be convinced to enter into a sordid May-September relationship with a celebrated member of the intelligentsia. However, tugging at her other arm with the pull of the entire haute bourgeoisie is young Paul (Benoît Magimel, The Piano Teacher), the cute but dangerously schizophrenic scion of a Lyon pharmaceutical magnate. What's a girl to do? Appropriately, the story takes as its starting point a famous Gilded Age crime of passion—the murder of a Madison Square Garden architect and notorious womanizer. A new thriller directed and co-written by Claude Chabrol (Merci Pour le Chocolat, La Cérémonie). (France/Germany, 2007)
