THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN
2012, Tribeca Film, 111 min, Belgium, Dir: Felix Van Groeningen

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. THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN, directed and co-written by Felix van Groeningen, is a portrait of a relationship from beginning to end, propelled by a soundtrack of bluegrass music. Previously screened as part of our monthly Recent Belgian Cinema series, this heartbreaking romantic drama is a 2014 Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign-Language Film. In Flemish and English with English subtitles.
