The Broken Circle Breakdown (film)

Friday 24th Jan 2014

Broken Circle BreakdownPlease note: – the release date of ‘Gravity’ (our previously advertised film) has been changed by the distributor so we can’t screen it on Jan 24th. However we do have this new movie that comes with great reviews (4 stars in the Guardian) and, as a contrast to ‘Gravity’, is a story set firmly on Earth in the present day.

This story slips between a couple’s first passionate encounters and their later battles against the illness that threatens to rob them of their most treasured possession — their daughter. The couple meet in the unexpected harmony of their voices, singing bluegrass songs to the accompaniment of bull fiddle, banjo and slide guitar. As the cruelties of life bite deep and their child is endangered, their worldviews start to separate. The film contains at its core a wonderfully human story, yet it is also a meditation upon mortality and transcendence emerging naturally from the landscape of folk songs and spirituals.

Runtime 112 mins Cert 15 Directed By: Felix Van Groeningen In Flemish with English subtitles
