Elise (Baetens) is a punk tattoo artist who gets high on her own supply — her skin is a palimpsest of birds and animals, mostly inspired by previous boyfriends whose names she has mercilessly drawn over when it doesn’t work out. Into her shop comes Didier (Heldenbergh), a big, bearded cowboy with a passing resemblance to Christoph Waltz, and a mad passion for bluegrass. He invites her to a gig, and one thing leads to another, and before long she’s pregnant.

Or rather: their child, Maybelle, is going through punishing rounds of chemo, and then we see her parents have sex, and then we see them meet for the first time. The young director, Felix Van Groeningen, has borrowed a trick from Derek Cianfrance’s Blue Valentine, dismantling the chronology of this painful love story to illuminate the past by ramming it up against the present, and vice versa.

The terrible suffering of their daughter pushes the couple apart, not just emotionally but ideologically: Didier’s already-staunch atheism becomes an angry rejection of Elise’s most comforting beliefs.

It adds up to feel-bad cinema at its most strangely cathartic. The structure keeps rescuing us from oblivion with joyful moments between every downward step. Heldenbergh co-wrote the play it’s based on, owns his role with gripping authority, and takes the stage as on-screen front-man for the most memorable bluegrass soundtrack since O Brother, Where Art Thou?.

Baetens, who’s 10 years his junior, has a quiveringly tender solo voice, and blows you away with her whole performance — spunky, hopeful, secretly fragile, clinging to life (not just her daughter’s) with an addict’s need.

She ought to be a huge star, and this is exactly where to see her born.

A bluegrass-loving couple are joined in tragedy in this immensely moving drama

Belgium's submission for the 2014 foreign language film Oscar category is a powerful and haunting tale of love, death and bluegrass – a mournful song played on a broken instrument, with striking visual accompaniment.

Presenting its central relationship in a Blue Valentine-style broken-backed montage of past and present, this shimmering adaptation of Johan Heldenbergh and Mieke Dobbels's play slips between the couple's first passionate encounters and their later battles against the illness that threatens to rob them of their most treasured possession.

He is hairy and obsessed with Americana; she is tattooed and wears a cross; they meet in the unexpected harmony of their voices, singing arcane songs about this world and the next to the accompaniment of bull fiddle, banjo and slide guitar. As the cruelties of life bite deep and their child is endangered, their worldviews diverge, a meditation upon mortality and transcendence emerging naturally from the landscape of folk songs and spirituals. Committed performances add to the appeal, provoking tears that are more than sentimental as the interweaving themes rise and fall like competing melodies – poignant, affecting and precise.
