The Broken Circle Breakdown


Directed by Felix Van Groeningen

Starring Veerle Baetens and Johan Heldenbergh

Written by Johan Heldenbergh and Carl Joss (based on their play)


Elise (Veerle Baetens) and Didier (Johan Heldenbergh) strike up a passionate and intense relationship; it’s love at first sight. They become even closer through their bluegrass band, and then unexpectedly experience the joy of parenthood with the arrival of Maybelle. A complete circle of happiness for this unconventional couple…

But sadness and sorrow ensue and take their toll; Didier and Elise begin to respond in different ways. Can love conquer fate? Not always, but the fantastic bluegrass soundtrack will carry viewers through this very personal drama. The soundtrack is by the TBCB band (performed by the cast).

The Broken Circle Breakdown enjoyed a ten- minute standing ovation and Audience Award at Berlin Film Festival, and went on to screen at Tribeca and Cannes.
