Rust and Bone, June 2014

Rust and Bone showing Thursday 26th June 2014 at the Cranleigh Film ClubFrance 2012. Director Jacques Audiard.

Certificate 15

Jacques Audiard does not make films for faint hearted intellectuals. He made A Prophet which says it all. His works are passionate, overwhelming brutal and emotional in their romanticism.

The story comes from a series of short stories by a Canadian writer. Matthias Schoenaerts is a Belgium actor destined for international stardom, who acts a Belgian security guard hoping to reach the top in illegal all in cage boxing. The title refers to the taste in the mouth after taking a hard punch. Marion Cotillard stars as a whale trainer who loses her lower legs in a freak accident and gradually regains her interest in living through love. Cotillard has a powerful role to suit her huge talent.

A great love story.
