Fifth about The Seventh

The Broken Circle Breakdown

The Broken Circle BreakdownThe Broken Circle Breakdown: a sad, touching story (if not particularly original), that is improved by the structure and the odd mix of Bluegrass music in a Belgian setting (which gives the film a generic feeling, since it doesn’t feel rooted to its origin country). The music plays an important role as it tones down strategically the saddest moments. The acting is very strong, with both Veerle Baetens and Johan Heldenbergh (as well as little Nell Cattrysse) digging deep and portraying the whole array of emotions.
