Break Away - a movie review

Updated on February 13, 2014

Break Away from the Expected

Loss of a job doesn’t have to be the end, but a chance at a new beginning.

Our world has changed. For most of us, the days of job security and guaranteed pensions are a thing of the past while unemployment and bankruptcy are a looming possibility. In a struggling economy, uncertainty and fear can weigh us down and immobilize us. But it doesn’t have to be that way. I encourage you to step into the life of Francois in Break Away as the unthinkable happens. The sudden loss of his job turns his world upside down. Although he is at the top of his field, time goes on while the money runs out and there is still no job to be found. Even his faith in God doesn’t seem to be helping. When his car won’t start he’s forced to grab his old bicycle to make it to an interview. Little does he know it’s a new journey he is embarking on. His hard work and willingness to do his best at even the most menial tasks encourages and uplifts those around him as he becomes a cyclist to be inspired by. Challenged by the Bible story of Jesus feeding the crowd with only 5 loaves of bread and two fish, he gives what he does have, a bike and a strong work ethic, to God. Who then transforms it into a whole new life and realization for Francois and those around him. We see God use him to touch and change the lives of his troubled brother, his worried co-worker, his new friend at the bike shop, and finally the world. Break Away shows us that when we lose our job or our way of life, we can put what little we have in God’s hands. He can use what we give him to turn our difficulties from devastating into a chance at a new and better beginning.
