Gabrielle, a pretty weather-presenter, falls in love with a famous and perverse writer and then marries an unstable billionaire…  A girl cut in two is one of the last thrillers by Claude Chabrol, the most popular and prolific director of the Nouvelle Vague. It is a dissection of bourgeois marriage that deals with infidelity leading to murder, all with a great sense of black humour.
