Interview: Director of Belgium's Entry for Best Foreign Film 'The Broken Circle Breakdown'

Submitted by melissa on November 18, 2013 - 7:24pm


Take note of this movie: The Broken Circle Breakdown. You'll be hearing about it more and more as the Academy Awards near because it's the entry for Belgium to be nominated for Best Foreign Film. I predict it'll be nominated as it has a very wide appeal and is equally tragic as it is thought-provoking.

Now playing in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington D.C., Philadelphia and Irvine, CA
see full list of cities below

I spoke with the director, Felix van Groeningen about his movie including his process for adapting the play for the screen. (p.s. The play happens to be written/directed by the lead actor, Johan Heldenbergh.)

"It was so simple and so pure and so beautiful." - Felix van Groeningen when speaking about the play that inspired him.

Bluray Review: 'Monsters University' Takes You Back to School With Mike & Sulley!

Screened for Cinemit members!

Over ten years ago, technology made the animation of the original extraordinary and now that has been exemplified in Monsters University. We now get a chance to see how the two got their start in the scaring world.

If you loved the first movie, you'll love a return to it with a whole new story. Although you know how the two end up, the journey is what makes this so enjoyable! What's awesome is that you not only get the Bluray, but also a DVD and a digital copy. No matter where you are, you can have the entertainment of Mike and Sulley.

If you enjoy bonus features, there are many to choose from. I put * next to the ones I think are really worth watching. The best one is Paths to Pixar - MU Edition in which Pixar employees talk about their journeys to become a part of the world of Pixar. The best part of Monsters University is the ending, and this is a perfect complement to it.
