Interview with Felix van Groeningen, director of The Broken Circle Breakdown

Felix van Groeningen

Felix van Groeningen: "When I saw the play for the first time, I though it was really fantastic. All the elements worked perfectly and as a whole, the play achieved real grandeur. It starts out in a rather funny way, like a concert, with musicians playing, then starting to tell their story. We understand that it's about a couple, and that they have lost a child; it goes on from there, always moving on a little further. How will this man and woman deal with their grief, and why don´t they relate to other anymore? That is what moved me in this play."
