Flanders House and Vlaamse Club Londen would like to invite you to a screening of the award winning film The Broken Circle Breakdown (2012).

The Broken Circle Breakdown is the latest film by Flemish director Felix van Groeningen. Originally based on the stage play by Johan Heldenbergh and Mieke Dobbels, it is the director’s fourth feature-length film after Steve+Sky (2004), With Friends Like These (2007) and The Misfortunates (2009). The film received international acclaim since its launch and has been widely awarded. This culminated recently in a nomination for the Academy Award (“Oscar”) for Best Foreign Film.

The screening (with English subtitles) will take place on Thursday 13 February 2014 at 7pm at Flanders House (1A Cavendish Square, London W1G 0LD). This is a free event but places are limited so please rsvp to rsvp@flandershouse.co.uk to secure your place (including people who have rsvp’d through Facebook). Nibbles and drinks will be provided.

‘The Broken Circle Breakdown’ tells the love story between Elise and Didier. She has her own tattoo shop, he plays the banjo in a band. It is love at first sight, in spite of major differences. He talks, she listens. He is a dedicated atheist, although at the same time a naïve romantic. She has a cross tattooed in her neck, even though she has both feet firmly on the ground. Their happiness is complete after their little girl Maybelle is born. Unfortunately, Maybelle, at six years old, becomes seriously ill. Didier and Elise respond in very different ways. But Maybelle does not leave them any choice. Didier and Elise will have to fight for her together.

We look forward to seeing you at the screening.
