Genre/Subjects: Drama, Music, Romance
Language: Dutch English Sub-Titles

ENDS Thursday at the Sie FilmCenter.

Nominated for the Best Foreign Language Academy Award.


An intensely moving portrait of a relationship from beginning to end, propelled by a soundtrack of foot-stomping bluegrass, The Broken Circle Breakdown is a romantic melodrama of the highest order. Elise (Veerle Baetens) and Didier (Johan Heldenbergh) fall in love at first sight. She has her own tattoo shop and he plays the banjo in a bluegrass band. They bond over their shared enthusiasm for American music and culture, and dive headfirst into a sweeping romance that plays out on and off stage—but when an unexpected tragedy hits their new family, everything they know and love is tested. Through flashbacks and flash-forwards director Felix Van Groeningen (The Misfortunates) seamlessly weaves a tapestry, detailing the story of a marriage and the pleasure and tragedy of being alive. Winner of the Panorama Audience Award at the Berlin International Film Festival, as well as Best Screenplay for a Narrative Feature Film (Carl Joos and van Groeningen) and Best Actress in a Narrative Feature Film (Baetens) at the Tribeca Film Festival.
