Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Breakdown's less convincingly scripted second half sputters more often than it shines.
Rotten: Breakdown gets the music right and has the benefit of strong acting, but its unapologetically melodramatic plot has a tendency to throw everything at you but the kitchen sink.
Fresh: Invigorating musical elements and the lead actors' potent chemistry can't entirely protect this tragic relationship drama from its encroaching shortage of subtlety.
Fresh: Some moments of the movie might leave viewers feeling bereft or gut-punched, but the sublime sounds (along with the sweet and silly scenes of the pair falling in love) provide respites from the sorrow.
Superb Tear Jerker
Very emotionally powerful story (it does have English Subtitles, by the way). The relationships are great, and you can identify with the characters. Thought provoking it touches on subjects of love, loss, faith differences and passion. The last scene fade-away had me in tears.
If you want to be depressed , watch this movie. I dare ya. Music is great.
Definitely worth watching...it is a emotionally deep film with great music.
