The Broken Circle Breakdown is the new film by Felix van Groeningen. The film is based on the stage play with the same name by Johan Heldenbergh and Mieke Dobbels, with which they filled all manner of theaters, church halls, public houses and cultural centres.
The Broken Circle Breakdown is van Groeningen’s fourth feature-length film after Steve+Sky (2004), With Friends Like These (2007) and The Misfortunates (2009). The latter gave Felix international recognition after it was selected in
Cannes (Quinzaine des Réalisateurs, 2009). The film was the indigenous hit movie of the 2009/10 season (465,000 admissions) and won several awards and nominations, both nationally and internationally. The admission figures in France and the Netherlands were particularly noteworthy.
The Broken Circle Breakdown is produced by Menuet and is van Groeningen’s fourth collaboration with producer Dirk Impens. The film is distributed by Kinepolis Film Distribution.
