  1. Sorin's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Very well filmed but a bit boring.

  2. jeromey's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    One of Chabrol’s best. Erotic tension, emotional exploitation and narcissistic psychopathology in a setting of haute bourgeois decadence. A brilliant re-imagining of the tragic events that led to the first tabloid driven “trial of the century” after the jealous murder of renowned architect Stanford White by the husband of his mistress Evelyn Nesbit.

  3. RHPC's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Both love affairs of Ludivine Sagnier were a bit unmotivated and unrealistic, but the film as a whole was quite engrossing. Ludivine Sagnier is of course fantastic, and Benoit Magimel is also very good. Chabrol keeps the audience guessing and refuses to opt for easy answers.

  4. Ben's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Boring movie. Pretentious ending.

  5. zubee's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Very good portrayal of the dichotomy between the moralists and amoralists.

  6. Michael Rozek's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Such a great performance by Sagnier--you can watch her as closely as is humanly possible yet never once see her flinch in being (not acting) her character---all while this prototypically Chabrolean stew of sin presented and consequences rendered bubbles to a climactic, deafening boil. Berleand so oily, Magimel subtly unhinged, everyone around them deeply flawed... Chabrol, Moliere: nonpareil observer-moralists...

  7. Richard Donnelly's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Weak screenplay. Unsympathetic characters. Why was Chabrol drawn to this? Even the setting was an afterthought.

  8. thiago's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    A old guy, a young girl, a trivial story and boom, we have a french movie! Of course, all french movies are not like that, fortunately.

  9. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

  10. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    This is a movie about a young woman who can't decide between two men. Both are ultimately bad options. The young woman is silly, unsymphatic and you don't know much about her. The men are also unlikable, uninteresting and without any charisma. The plot sounds interesting, but it's not. Extremely boring. A waste.

  11. Diderot's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Sagnier is great as a young woman who may or may not be more naive than people treat her in a world that may or may not be determined to tear her apart.

  13. Terry_Moby's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Chabrols vorletzter Film, mein 21. im privaten Chabrol-Festval. Schlechte Filme kann der Mann nicht machen. Selbst wenn es so aussieht, als ob die Geschichte nur so dahinplätschert, realisiert man langsam, wie schäbig die Motive der Figuren sind, wie verkommen die Blahblah-Gesellschaft ist und wieviel Spaß man dabei hat, dem zuzuschauen.

  14. Daniel S.'s rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Another Chabrol cold heroin after Isabelle -icy- Huppert and Stéphane -frozen- Audran in this satire of the French bourgeoisie, another Chabrol if not the sole Chabrol cinematographical theme. Benoît Magimel is great here. Highly recommended.

  15. fiona_huffman's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Despite an interesting start, I find this film to be weak, perhaps Chabrol's weakest. The character development is poor and it is impossible to buy into certain situations. The denouement just about ruins the film for me. 2/5

  16. jaime's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    what a movie! sexy french women, dark plots, psychological twists... what more could you ask for?!

  17. Stanco's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Una película poco interesante, con una historia que no te lleva a ningún sitio, con topicazos incluidos.

  18. James Caley's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Can't be correct, the film goes for longer than 75 min! This film is great. I really enjoyed it and Ludavine is sensational and in the movie she's really good too. It's the only Claude Chabrol film I've seen. I really want to see some of his older school films.

  19. Rodney Welch's rating of the film A Girl Cut in Two

    Just saw it. Fairly interesting and intelligent until the last five minutes. Chabrol has a good story, just no ending.
