Poetic romance

OUT NOW! Jacques Audiard stages a desperate fight for survival in the mesmerising DE ROUILLE ET D'OS.

Following The Beat That My Heart Skipped
 and the formidable A
 Prophet, Jacques Audiard
 restages the tussle
 between violence and
 love over a man’s soul. 
With mesmerising performances from both Marion Cotillard and Belgian newcomer Matthias Schoenaerts, as well as breathtaking CGI effects, Rust and Bone is a poetic romance between prizefighter Ari, who fights to eat, and whale trainer Stéphanie rebuilding her life after a marine accident. A desperate fight against the elements for survival, Audiard’s film is an emotionally rewarding affirmation of the un-crushable nature of the human spirit.
