Rust And Bone (De Rouille Et D'Os)
Starring: Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts, Armand Verdure
Directed by: Jacques Audiard
The plot: Stephanie trains killer whales but her close working relationship with these majestic creatures ends when one orca severs her legs, resulting in a double amputation. An earlier one-night stand with hulking Belgian brute Ali - a single father who doesn't know how to care for his six-year-old son Sam - sows the seeds of an unconventional romance.

what the others say
"Another triumph from Audiard and a Cotillard masterclass, this bruising, tender melodrama lingers long in the memory."
"The muscularity of Audiard's approach becomes more macho and less appealing as the film goes on, and the script wanders down distracting byroads that make it feel episodic and inattentive."
"Cotillard's performance is primed for awards, while Schoenaerts is a rough diamond."
