Product Description

Product Description

Directed by Jacques Audiard (A Prophet), Rust and Bone is a powerful drama starring Academy Award®-winner Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises, La Vie en Rose) and Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead).

Ali (Schoenaerts) dreams of becoming a professional boxer. When he is suddenly put in charge of his five year old son, he moves in with his sister for support. Whilst working as a nightclub bouncer, he meets the beautiful and confident killer whale trainer, Stephanie (Cotillard). He gives her his number, not expecting that she will ever call. After being the victim of a tragic accident, Stephanie surprisingly turns to Ali for support. These lost souls discover new meaning in life together when Ali enters the dangerous world of underground boxing.

Winner of the Best Film Award at the London Film Festival in 2012, nominated for two BAFTA and Golden Globe Awards.

• Deleted Scenes


In the films of Jacques Audiard, the disadvantaged tend to triumph over adversity, like the hearing-impaired secretary in Read My Lips or the illiterate inmate in A Prophet. Rust and Bone, which draws from Craig Davidson's short-story collection, presents a pair of individuals with a unique set of challenges.

Ali (Bullhead's Matthias Schoenaerts in a performance of great strength and sensitivity) arrives in Antibes from Belgium with no money, no wife, and a 5-year-old son, so he goes to stay with his estranged sister and her wary husband. After securing a job as a bouncer, the former boxer extracts orca trainer Stéphanie (Marion Cotillard, who doesn't hit one false note) from a fracas at a nightclub. He's hoping for something more, but she isn't available. Ali gives her his number anyway, and that might be the end of that until a routine at the marine park goes horribly awry, and Stéphanie suffers a devastating injury.

After her release from the hospital, she gives Ali a call. When he sees her again, he expresses no surprise or disappointment regarding her diminished state, and his lack of judgment lifts her out of despair. Just as Ali starts to fight again, she returns to the water, and the process of rebuilding begins.

In the months ahead, Stéphanie becomes even more independent, but fears that her life as a woman will never be the same--and it won't, but Audiard makes the unlikely romance that develops between these two into something truly touching. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

By KaleHawkwood TOP 100 REVIEWER on 5 Nov. 2012
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.

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.

'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
'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.
