Competition: Win ‘Broken Circle Breakdown’ *closed*

Director Felix Van Groeningen’s heartfelt drama The Broken Circle Breakdown (2012) charts the love story between a Belgian couple (Veerle Baetens and Johan Heldenbergh) who soon find their love tested to its most extreme limits. To celebrate the home entertainment release of The Broken Circle Breakdown this coming Monday (25 November), we have THREE DVD copies of Van Groeningen’s heartbreaking latest film to give away to our legion of regular readers, kindly provided by the team at UK distributor StudioCanal. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Based on the stage play by Johan Heldenbergh and Mieke Dobbels, the film tells the story of the highs and lows in the life of Elise (Baetens), who owns her own tattoo shop, and Didier (Heldenbergh), who plays the banjo in a Flemish band. In spite of major differences, the pair fall in love at first sight, going on to enjoy an idyllic lifestyle singing together in the band, and leading a life of rustic simplicity in the Flemish countryside. Not long after, their happiness appears to be complete with the birth of their daughter, Maybelle (Nell Cattrysse). But when Maybelle later becomes gravely ill, Elise and Didier’s differing responses to the crisis throws their relationship into turmoil and places a question mark on their future together.
