Film "The Broken Circle Breakdown" - ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST FOREIGN FILM! 2014-01-23 19:00:00
Description

THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN

Director: Felix Van Groeningen   Belgium, 2012, 112 minutes; English & Flemish with subtitles

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE!  BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM!

The long-lasting love between a free-spirited tattoo artist and a gentle bluegrass musician is put to the test by tragedy in this passionate, multiple-award-winning romantic drama. When Elise (Veerle Baetens) meets banjo-playing bluegrass musician Didier (Johan Heldenbergh, author of the play on which the film is based), it's love at first sight, despite some considerable differences: he talks, she listens; he is a dedicated atheist (while at the same time a naïve romantic), while the cross tattooed on the back of her neck speaks to her quietly dedicated faith. Their lives quickly become inextricably intertwined as Elise starts singing in Didier's band, and the two soon have a beautiful little daughter, Maybelle; but when Maybelle falls critically ill after her sixth birthday, the seemingly inseparable bond between this perennial odd couple is put to the test. A passionate and moving love story scored to a glorious soundtrack of traditional and original bluegrass compositions (the film's soundtrack album was a bestseller in Belgium), The Broken Circle Breakdown was a box-office hit in its home country a festival favourite worldwide, winning awards at the Berlin and Tribeca film festivals. –Toronto International film Festival
