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.
« Pour la finesse de son écriture, la puissance de son interprétation et la maîtrise dont fait preuve Felix Van Groeningen pour nous entraîner dans ce maelström mélo-psycho-musical, on tape dans les mains, et plutôt deux fois qu'une. » (Gérard Biard, Charlie Hebdo)
« It's a rich, raw, heartache of a film, a beautifully composed, soul-stirring drama about love, family, sex, sorrow, faith, and music. » (Joyce Kulhawik,
