Customer Reviews

Excellent movie very good acting and good plot.
Grandma
The visual effects for the film was also fantastic and how they were able to capture Cotillard as a person without legs and make the film look so realistic was great.
Dennis A. Amith
I don't want to give any of it away -- but if you like complex characters, and a plot that matters, you will like this, I think.

"De Rouille et D'os" (English title: "Rust and Bone"; 115 min.) is a 2012 French-Belgian co-production that was first released at the 2012 Cannes film festival. The movie is directed by Jacques Audiar, the guy who brought us the excellent "The Prophet" movie a few years ago. The movie stars Belgian actor Matthias Schoenarts as Ali, who along with his 5 yr. old son, and down on his luck, is moving in with his sister and her husband in Antibes (Southern France). Ali is the muscular type, and he finds a job as a bouncer in a local night club, where he eventually meets Stephanie (played by Marion Cotillard). Stephanie works as a killer whale trainer at the local waterpark. Stephanie is, like Ali, a strong-willed person and their relationship is not an easy one. Then one day Stephanie gets involved in a horrible accident at work, losing both her legs. To say that this throws her world upside down would be the understatement of the year. It also has immediate consequences on her relationship with Ali. At this point we're not even half-way through the movie, and to give more away about the plot would really ruin your viewing experience. You'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Let me tell you, this is one heck of a movie. Not always easy viewing, but it kept my attention fromn start to finish. Schoenarts, after his leading role in last year's Oscar-nominated "Bull's Head", confirms with this commanding, physical, and at times startling, performance that he is one of the most promising up-and-coming actors, and I am quite certain it won't be much longer before Hollywood comes knocking on his door.

Alain is taking his son from Belgium to Antibes to live with his sister. Once there he gets a job as a door guard at a night club, and one evening he comes to the aid of a lady in distress. That lady is Stephanie played brilliantly by Marion Cottillard (`Contagion' and `La vie en rose'). Stephanie is an Orca trainer or killer whale trainer as we used to call these beautiful creatures. She suffers an irreversible accident whilst at work and understandably falls off the radar and becomes a virtual recluse.

Then she calls up Alain and asks him to visit her as it was clear from the start that there was a spark. He duly obliges and a new relationship blossoms, however he needs some ready cash and turns to bare knuckle fist fights to make up the short fall. What develops is a deeply engrossing and engaging tale of a journey towards each other for the two main players.

This is a film by Jacques' Audiard (`A Prophet' and `The Beat My Heart Skipped') and he took his inspiration from two short stories by Canadian author Craig Davison, `Rust and Bone' and `Rocket Ride'). He has made a wonderful film which has iconic shots subtle camera work and at its centre a fiercely strong performance from Cottillard that had me gripped from the very beginning. The shots of the whales are just amazing and whilst I don't agree with such beautiful animals being held in captivity, I understand their place in this story.

There is so much in this film that if you blink you will miss something. The music is great too everything from John Cooper Clark, the B 52's and Lykke Li. This is in French with really good sub titles. This got a fair run in cinemas too and I wish I had seen it on the big screen but seeing it is the main point, one of my friends said that it was hard work getting through some of the more painful scenes but that all the `effort' was well and truly rewarded, I can only highly recommend.

I'm writing this review in defense of 'Rust and Bone' after seeing EW's Owen Gleiberman pick it as one of his "Worst Movies of 2012." Granted, this latest offering from French director Jacques Audiard doesn't measure up to A Prophet (Un proph?te), but that's like taking Francis Ford Coppola to task for not matching the greatness of 'The Godfather' (no, that's not sacrilege: 'A Prophet' is that good).

Gleiberman gripes that star Marion Cotillard is "forced to flail and mood-swing from scene to scene [and] (i)n an insult to the disabled, there is never much to her but her hellacious injury."

I'm wondering what movie he saw. What we saw was what we thought was a very realistic depiction of the trauma and long period of despair that someone involved in a catastrophic injury of this nature would endure. Far from there being "never much to her but her hellacious injury," Cotillard's character does, to the contrary, get light back in her life through the most unlikeliest of sources: Matthias Schoenaerts' brawling, "operational" (see the movie) Alain. Witness her smile-filled reunion with her erstwhile workmates at their SeaWorld-like employer or her obvious delight at being thrust into a managerial role at Alain's unsanctioned backstreet brawls.

Call this also a defense of Audiard, who I believe is the world's best director (and a personal favorite along with Israel's Eran Riklis and Eytan Fox). Audiard has released four brilliant movies:
