The Broken Circle Breakdown

It’s frigid outside.
You’re going to lounge in bed or
Lay on the couch all afternoon looking for a flick.
Here’s your answer.
Right here.
On the 2014 Oscar Ballot for the Best Foreign Language Film.
You don’t like Bluegrass music?
Watch it anyway.
You don’t like foreign films and subtitles?
Watch it anyway.
Does the racy trailer put you off?
Watch it anyway.

The Broken Circle Breakdown Movie Reviews:


  1. This was one of the best films I have seen in a very long time! It had it all. Hope it wins tomorrow night.


  2. I’m always intrigued by your recommendations. Do you know where it can be found? Curious, though, seems to be in English. Is ‘Hillbilly’ a foreign language now?


    • Thanks Todd. It is a Belgium movie. There are English language sections (and the music). We watched it on Cablevision Pay for View. You can also order video on Netflix. (Not sure about Hillbilly being a foreign language)

  3. i love every single frame of this and cannot wait to see it. these are the kind of films i love so much and thank you for telling us about it.


  4. Wow, what a hook, DK! This looks phenomenal… Think I have my Saturday evening activity set. 🙂


  5. I thought of “Walk The Line” as I was watching (before I saw the reference in the trailer). I know what I will be watching on Monday during the next snowstorm (we have company this weekend)


  6. “…a thing of bitter beauty“…sounds like my kind of movie, yes. 🙂


  7. I loved both Walk the Line and Blue Valentine and this looks fantastic! (My original comment was going to be “actually, its gorgeous here”. Aren’t you proud of me? 🙂
