    Second time.

    I am still captivated by the powerful imagery (best use of Katy Perry music? Yes). Marion Cotillard and Mathias Schoenaerts' performances are still great. Also, more damning about sea parks than Blackfish (also less manipulative). I love the tragic romanticism of it all. The only thing wrong is that more people aren't talking about it/accept Cotillard's greatness.

    One of the most tragic, yet magical films of 2012. The performances, Alexandre Desplat's score, the camera work, directing, everything comes together in a melting pot of mayhem. It's tragical. Watch it as soon as you can. Masterpiece.

    A complex and formally ravishing portrait of two damaged people coming together to make one is yet another audacious effort from French filmmaker Jacques Audiard. Marion Cotillard is stunning and Audiard’s fluent camera captures so many fleeting emotions at the edges of the frame that “Rust and Bone” magnificently outstretches its somewhat clichéd narrative to become an engulfing emotional experience. Nothing is more moving than the final phone call between Cotillard and Schoenaerts or the way Cotillard summons a whale against the glass and forgives it.

    Verhaalfilm. Soms rare sprongen en iets té klassiek dramatisch naar m'n smaak. Knappe special effects. Sterk gespeeld, maar ook wel duidelijk dat het dat is: gespeeld.

    Die Charaktere hätten ein bisschen mehr Tiefgang vertragen können, ansonsten gutes Drama.
    Außerdem Pluspunkt für Marion Cotillard.

    A powerful and believable take on two people struggling to find their way in life. Both leads are stunning and the film has the messiness of reality in its' structure, avoiding sentimentality and cliche. Both characters are flawed but human. Occasionally it's frustrating and the excellent special effects can be slightly distracting as you wonder just how they did that but neither overpowers this brave piece of movie making.

    Even though I hated the starring actor's actings and his character, the movie itself was lovable.

    After having briefly met hulky bouncer Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts - Bullhead) at a club and showing little interest in him, Stephanie (Cotillard) reaches out to him after her tragedy for companionship and…
