Rust and Bone is a muscular romance from the director of the masterful prison drama A Prophet. A de-glammed Marion Cotillard stars as a French Riviera aquatic show orca trainer who loses her legs in an on-the-job accident. She embarks on a beautifully awkward relationship with a blunt instrument of a man (Bullhead's Matthias Schoenaerts). Despite the Côte d'Azur setting and Katy Perry on the soundtrack, Audiard's elegant film has a rough-around-the-edges aesthetic, as if he's digging for dirt beneath attractive surfaces. Some will dismiss the film because of its hoary contrivances, particularly during the gut-wrenching climax, but they're not giving the brilliant director his due. Audiard's use of genre and clichés is part of a greater argument about moral redemption and deceptive appearances, where happy endings are only skin deep. Subtitled. (Radheyan Simonpillai)

    Rust and Bone was unusual in that the main character was neither intelligent, nor likable. The script is very good as we see the development of his character. Marion Cotillard did not play as large a role as I expected. She is an excellent actor but I don't consider this her best work. Thanks for coming and discussing this with me, Carmen.

      Sorry but you will have to pay for the movie. The sponsors I've chosen don't provide any money to our group. I'll remove them now that you mention it. There are other film groups which do have free movies so you should check those out. Thanks, Brian.
