The Director Of THE MISFORTUNATES Returns With THE BROKEN CIRCLE BREAKDOWN
Back in 2009 Belgian director Felix Van Groeningen caused quite a stir with The Misfortunates, a film about a family living on the outer fringes of society. Rude, tragic and frequently very funny The Misfortunates established Van Groeningen on the international scene as a significant talent. And he will soon be back on screens with his latest effort, The Broken Circle Breakdown.
Once again Van Groeningen is living on the fringes and once again this looks to be an exceptional piece of work. Check the first teaser below.Elise is 28 and owns her own tattoo parlour. 36-year-old Didier is a Flemish cowboy who plays the banjo in a band. Although in many respects they are as alike as day and night, somehow their characters match perfectly and the arrival of their baby, Maybelle, makes their happiness complete. Life is good until one day, fate intervenes, and they lose their daughter.
