    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    To Jacques Audiard, it's not enough to have a happy ending. Oh, no, sir. You gotta have a happy ending with your characters bathed in a golden light walking towards each other in slow motion while the voiceover says something sappy and slushy that has to do with the title.

    Good soundtrack, and moving moments. Not a big fan of the lead actor but Marion was brilliant.

    Very well shot and acted with a few tough scenes to watch. Marion Cotillard was incredible.

    Emotionally charged drama involving two physically and emotionally broken characters from two different environments.

    The film occasionally delves into melodrama usually by the over bearing score. However the films main strength is when the two performers are allowed to act realistically, and both the performances feel completely raw and real.

    Also featuring really amazing effects and make-up, Rust and Bone is a very effective piece of drama in a world with a lot of similar films offering heated competition.

    For some reason, Rust and Bone, which is about a whale trainer who loses her legs in an accident going on to tame a beast-of-a-man (and street fighter) is less ridiculous than it sounds. It is a film that constantly reinvents itself. It asks you take some big leaps, and in that regard it reminds me of The Place Beyond the Pines.

    I enjoyed it quite a bit, though a rewatch at some point might clarify some issues I had with the plotting.

    Cotillard, as ever, is a goddess and completely believable in every moment. Schoenerts, too, is fantastic as the brutish lead actor.

    Rust & Bone overcomes its soapy, uncontrolled storyline through astounding performances and strong direction from Jacques Audiard.
