The Girl Cut In Two
French love triangle

The story revolves around Gabrielle Deneige, a young French woman who has a high profile job presenting the weather on French TV. Renowned author Charles Saint-Denis is interviewed at the television station where Gabrielle works, and a connection is instantly forged. Later, at a book signing, the bond deepens, despite the presence of a spoiled, ultra-rich, pharmaceutical heir, who longs to claim Gabrielle as his own. Despite the fact that Charles is still "happily married", he and Gabrielle share an intimate afternoon at the author's nearby pied-a-terre. Later, as the potentially psychotic Paul steps up his pursuit of Gabrielle, the young woman begins to question the purity of intention of either of her suitors.

Accomplished multi-layered cinema that is both engrossing and darkly funny.
