Broken Circle Breakdown

Broken Circle Breakdown

A film by Felix van Groeningen
Starring Veerle Baetens, Johan Heldenbergh

Elise (Veerle Baetens), a tattoo artist and Didier (Johan Heldenbergh), a musician, fall in love at first sight. They bond over their love of bluegrass music and American culture and dive headfirst into a sweeping romance that plays out both on and off stage.

They marry and their little family is completed when their daughter Maybelle is born; but when illness destroys their happiness, everything they know and love falls away and their bond is broken. An intensely moving portrait of a relationship from beginning to end, propelled by a soundtrack of beautiful bluegrass performances, the Broken Circle Breakdown is a tragic, poignant story of passion and heartbreak.

Belgium’s submission for the 2014 foreign language film Oscar is a powerful and haunting tale of love, death and bluegrass – a mournful song played on a broken instrument, with striking visual accompaniment.indieWIRE
