Breaking The Waves


Wednesday 2 October 8.30pm Channel 039

In a small coastal town, a simple, devoutly religious Scottish woman, Bess McNeill, finds an unlikely partner in an oil rig worker from Norway, Jan Nyman. However, the relationship grows strained when Nyman breaks his neck in a horrific work accident on the rig and becomes paralysed. Unable to perform sexually and suffering mentally from the accident as well, Jan convinces Bess to have sex with other men, which she comes to believe is God's work. A breakout film for Emily Watson and widely regarded as one of the most distinctive European movies of the 1990’s. Starring Academy Award nominee Emily Watson & Stellan Skarsgård.
