4,5 " I always knew. That it was too good to be true. That it couldn't last. That life isn't like that, life isn't generous. You mustn't love someone. You mustn't become attached to someone. Life begrudges you that. It takes everything away from you and it laughs in your face. It betrays you."
A film about passion within a relationship, within their love of their music, within the tragedy of the story that unfolds. The Broken Circle Breakdown may well be the movie find of the year that has had the most profound impact to me; for it is raw, real and connected and within its darkest colour hues there is such a bright light shining out. I cannot recommend it enough.
The DVD box said this was a bluegrass love movie and didn't even say it was in Flemish, so I guess they were hoping people would be tricked into watching it because it is actually about that their little child has cancer. I did not want to see a Flemish cancer movie, what a ripoff. MUBI should change the synopsis/screenshot, it is not their job to sell this dismal thing. I enjoy a good tragedy but this is depressing.
