The Girl Cut in Two

Claude Chabrol's latest film The Girl Cut in Two (IFC Films)

Technically you could call Claude Chabrol a senior citizen. At 78 the French New Waver can no longer be called a rebellious young upstart. But he has become a rebellious old one, and one who's remained quite prolificl. He's been making almost a film a year for the past decade, not bad someone whose almost an octogenarian. Chabrol's latest film is The Girl Cut in Two (opened October 17 at Landmark's Ken Cinema), which, like his earlier films, goes after the French bourgeoisie with biting humor.
