The Missing Half (L'Autre) (2003) (Belgium)

Director: Benot Mariage
Cast: Dominique Baeyens, Philippe Grand'Henry

The film tells of a woman who is expecting twins but decides to abort one of them ...

What is good ...
-- The Missing Half seems to have 3 levels of interpretation
(i) the missing (i.e., aborted) twin
(ii) the missing (i.e., departed) husband
(iii) the missing self
-- There is one particularly disturbing scene ... no spoilers here ...

What can be better
-- For some, the film may be too slow and meditative ...

Conclusion:
It is not a mainstream film ... You either like the film or hate it ...
