November 4: Wine, Hadar and Marion Cotillard – watch “Rust and Bone” at Cinemadar
“Rust and Bone” (French: De rouille et d’os) is a 2012 French–Belgian romantic drama film directed by Jacques Audiard, starring Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts, based on Craig Davidson’s short story collection Rust and Bone. It tells the story of an unemployed 25-year-old man who falls in love with a woman who trains killer whales.
This is a tremendously acted and directed drama, and the spark of love between Cotillard and Schoenaerts after they have sex for the first time is exciting and moving. The sheer quality of these two performances prevents the film from seeming contrived, and the symbolism of the whale does not become self-conscious; in fact, it does not even seem like a symbol at all. Audiard’s previous films have been intensely male, but this one gives a powerful role to Cotillard. I felt that the ending of the movie did not quite have the power of its first two acts, and I also felt that Cotillard’s own presence is faded out in the final minutes. But what a love story.
