Felix van GreenLine tells us dramatic-musical history for several years of the relationship of fashion now, you can say, "atypical" couples. The guy — amerikanofil and it seems that it all the gut-soaked States, from the way of life to hobby (taste buds — the star-spangled form). Lives in farm house for camping, owns a red pick-up truck and plays banjo, performing at this, together with the group, country music confident English language. Girl — a tattoo artist perceives the world through the images. Carry on a full range of popular tattoos, including a colored name of their former guys, like being a personification of America (which especially reveals closer to the final). Even wanting to seduce her new boyfriend, she stars and stripes bikini, appears in a "pin-up" image on the hood of his cowboy car, after placing back the picture in the style of the southern States. Further development of their relations may not only joint participation in a musical group, but to the birth of a beautiful daughter (a child of "America") and seems to a utopian Paradise, a cardboard-generated from the stacked images, it is not only enough of the terrace, how would closing the circle. Only not can always be built on mutual polarity of images, "American dream a", and, in a certain moment, comes of contact with reality, leaving the heroes in"realistic" part of the picture.
Thus, the film can be divided into two parts, and plot and film. The "utopian" part — bringing through the realization of infinite images of contemporary social happiness and drama is a model of pop cinema, at this, in return for giving the intended audience "pfft-caniam" on topic "I have seen" emotion, emotion, forcibly drawn through a fun and carefree country motifs on the background of the cheerful smiles of a child suffering from an incurable disease. And the second is destructive, the "realistic" part — where the gap is exemplary of the circle, leads to the collapse of the utopian model, revision of values and relationships. This a part can be safely attributed to a kind of existential and psychological formation. At the help of all those same artificial methods, only the music became melancholic system, and old tenderness gave way to outright pain, through tragedy, nervous breakdowns, shouts, quarrels and mutual misunderstanding of the characters.
Although, as I have said, the techniques for drawing out emotions very sneaky and artificial (sometimes it seems that they pulled the fish hook, touching at the same emotions, some nearby, run up instead of leaving a wound), it is impossible not to appreciate the way of storytelling through a non-linear "flashback". Freely mix temporary space, the author, in the first place, attracts the viewer's attention through the interest of unraveling the story of the ball, and second — gives a special effect of emotional presence and, consequently, a true sense of experiences. It sometimes seems as if we know about the characters a little more than shown this point in time, as if anticipating\remembering that will happen in the future. When the, this technique is implemented so that allows the viewer not only feel, but and to analyze the situation and action heroes from side.
Even with all its "okoloserdecna" style, "ekologicheskoi" theme and wrapped fashion sheath (in the form of me what it reminded a mixture of the Irish work "Once" and the American "Blue Valentine"), due to the above-described model of the narrative, and also a great soundtrack, strong and confident acting — the picture looks very attractive, with genuine interest and emotional outbursts.
To paraphrase FIPRESCI: "the Broken Circle" — song country style, with your love, spiritual experiences, tragedy and the headache, which can give us life-like evidence of man is able to endure and through to until there is at least some speck of hope or faith. This very personal story that occurred in tiny Belgium — is the personification of the final fall of the "American dream".
