I bought this film purely because I saw Marion Cotillard was present. Having seen her in 'La Vie en Rose' (biography of Edith Piaf) in which I thought she was outstanding.
At it's most basic, it's about the relationship about one of lifes' losers and a woman who has tragically lost her legs in a killer whale show. It's one of those films that gradually draws you in. It's gritty, real-life, and it has a couple of hard to watch excellent scenes that will leave you wondering why you are feeling those particular emotions. All the actors in it are outstanding.
I have watched it with 3 discerning friends and the comments were: "Excellent film." " I enjoyed that, but I don't know why!"
I am not really into 'happy endings for the sake of it" but enjoyed the ending in this.

Format: DVD
This is a fiercely unsentimental film about `ordinary` people who occasionally behave in surprisingly extraordinary ways, to survive, to help others to cope, or merely to pay the rent.
A Belgian man named Alain (Matthias Schoenaerts, brilliant) and his small son Sam are on the road, escaping from - we`re never sure exactly what. They hole up with his sister and her husband in their poky apartment in Antibes, and he finds himself a dubious job, while earning some extra money bare-knuckle fighting. This is one tough homme, who rarely smiles, and is not always successful at being a capable father, though he tries to do his best. He is, however, highly successful with women...
Stephanie (Marion Cotillard, stunningly good) works at the local outdoor sealife centre, as a kind of ringmaster to a troupe of ostensibly tame killer whales, until there is a ghastly accident, from which she emerges horribly maimed.
Needless to say, the two people`s lives intersect, though not always in ways one might expect.
This is a beautifully directed, well-scripted film about how the least likely people can befriend each other and, ultimately, become more than simply fairweather friends. Cotillard - so remarkable as Piaf in La Vie En Rose a few years ago - is an actress who is what one might call endlessly watchable, with no excesses and no unnecessary posturing, giving a performance of deep integrity and truthfulness. She doesn`t overdo anything, and she has a soulful pair of eyes which appear always to be seeing that little bit further. Unlike another reviewer here, I found the CGI effects seamless, no distraction at all - in fact, I was wondering most of the time how on earth they managed to make it all look so real.

Format: DVD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Marion Cotillard delivers a remarkable portrayal of Stephanie, who,
following an unimaginably awful accident in her job as a killer whale
trainer, seems to have little left that she might wish to live for until
a drifter, Ali (another riveting turn here from Matthias Schoenaerts) with
his small son in tow, helps to restore some sense of self-belief and hope
into her shattered existence. In truth the slow and tenuous evolution of
their relationship turns out to be an emotional salvation for them both.

Corinne Masiero as Ali's long-suffering sister Anna and little Armand Verdure
as his son Sam also deserve praise for the naturalness of their performances.
(Ali and Sam's scene on the frozen lake is almost unbearable to watch!)

Director Jacques Audiard doesn't just tell the tale well. He makes us feel it.

Highly Recommended.

It may be grim oop north, but absent the heat it seems to be that way down south too. A boxer (Matthias Schoenaerts playing the unlikely named Ali - for Alain it transpires) turns up at his sisters in Antibes with his young son and tries to get started again, in the story that follows there is more bad luck than one could shake a stick at as he meets Marion Cotillard's character, gets involved in bare knuckle fighting, and the secret world of industrial spying. The ending may be a little sentimental for a British audience but the story pulls no punches until then.

'Ali' ( who has allways dreamed of becoming a proffesional boxer ) suddenly
finds himself with his 5 year-old son 'Sam' it would be fair to say 'ali' has little
in the way of parental skills and decides to move down to live with his sister for
much needed help with 'Sam'
'Ali' gets a job as a bouncer at a club where after sorting an incident he meets
a worse for wear 'stephanie' 'ali' offers to get her home in her car, 'Ali'
had substained an injury to his fist during the incident and asks for ice-cubes
to ease the swelling.
Never expecting her to call he gives 'Steph' his mobile number before he heads
home.
'Steph' works at an aquatic centre where she trains 'Whales'
during a show a freak accident puts 'Steph' in hospital, when she eventually
wakes up she finds she'd lost both legs from just above the knees down.
after leaving hospital she is at a very low ebb,full of despair,she phones 'Ali'
out of the blue.
'Ali' though suprised does respond to her call,over time a friendship builds
between them.
'Ali' is offered a chance to earn 500-1000 euro's taking part in fights, underground'
(we'd call it 'illegal' prize fighting, no holds barred ) he suddenly has money to spend.
meanwhile the relashionship between 'Steph' and 'Ali' becomes physical.
'Ali' likes to play the field in truth.
'Steph' realizes she's beginning to have feelings she never thought possible because
of her loss.
'Ali' is about to learn how much his son really means to him, perhaps he'll also
realize his feelings for 'Steph'
It's a gritty and often touching movie expierience, well worth a spin.
