The Broken Circle Breakdown

Home  /  Cinema  /  The Broken Circle Breakdown

Presenting its central relationship in a Blue Valentine-style broken-backed montage of past and present, this shimmering adaptation of Johan Heldenbergh and Mieke Dobbels’s play slips between the couple’s first passionate encounters and their later battles against the illness that threatens to rob them of their most treasured possession. Belgium’s submission for the 2014 foreign language film Oscar category is a powerful and haunting tale of love, death and bluegrass.
