Trailer: The Broken Circle Breakdown

Watch the trailer for the highly-anticipated new drama The Broken Circle Breakdown, about a torrid romance between two bluegrass musicians.

The Broken Circle Breakdown won two prizes (Best Screenplay for a Narrative Feature Film and Best Actress in a Narrative Feature Film for Veerle Bartens)
at this year¹s Tribeca Film Festival. Co-written by Carol Joos and director Felix van Groeningen, this romantic melodrama follows the courtship of two
artists as they fall in love and start a future together.

It¹s love at first sight for quirky tattoo artist Elise (Bartens) and bluegrass musician Didier (Johan Heldenbergh). The two 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.

An intensely moving portrait of a relationship, The Broken Circle Breakdown, propelled by a soundtrack of foot-stomping bluegrass, is one crowd-pleasing,
tear-jerking, unforgettable experience.

The film¹s soundtrack ‹ scored by renowned composer Bjorn Eriksson ‹ is currently #1 on the soundtrack charts in France and Belgium, and has become the
best-selling soundtrack of all time in Belgium. Co-stars Baetens and Heldenbergh perform their own songs, and are part of the offscreen Broken Circle
Breakdown Bluegrass Band, whose European tour is sold out through 2014!

The Broken Circle Breakdown opens at Landmark Sunshine in NYC on November 1st , and will roll out to theaters around the country soon after.

The music from The Broken Circle Breakdown, already the top-selling soundtrack of all time in Belgium, is now available for purchase in the U.S. from Tribeca

Identifying w/the character of Elise (I, too, lost a child some years back), similar reactions played out in my own life. I am no longer w/the father of the child we lost due to different viewpoints; not religious, per se, but more so the stages of grieving. I have watched this film again & again & each time I find small nuances that answer a question from the previous viewing. Although, I am still curious as to what Elise's spirit whispered in Didier's ear toward the end of the film as well as the tattoo shown as the final scene of the movie; did she intentionally kill herself or was she intending to start over w/Didier as Alabama & Monroe?
