Rust and Bone DVD

Starring: Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts

Director: Jacques Audiard

Rating: 4/5

Rust and Bone was one of the best movies to hit the big screen last year and it really lit up the festival circuit.

This week sees the movie released on DVD and Blu-Ray and it really is a movie that is absolutely not to be missed.

Stephanie (Marion Cotillard) a killer whale trainer who late one night meets Alain (Matthias Schoenaerts) in a fracas at the nightclub where he works as a bouncer.

Put in charge of his young son, Alain has come from Belgium to Antibes to live with his sister and her husband as a family.

Alain’s bond with Stephanie grows deeper after she suffers a horrible accident, bringing the two together once more.

Cotillard is one of the finest actresses working in Hollywood at the moment and she really cements herself with her performance in this film.

It is a tour de force performance from Cotillard as her character struggles after the loss of her legs.

It is emotional as it is powerful as Stephanie starts to rebuild her life and accept what has happened for her.

To say that is was a shock that she was overlooked for Best Actress when the Oscar nominations were revealed earlier this year - it really is a performance that deserved greater recognition.

As well as great acting the script is fantastic as there is a strong narrative that runs throughout the entire film that never misses a beat.

And it never misses a beat due to the steady hand of director Jacques Audiard as he brings such a drive to this movie.

He is not afraid to be emotional and, at times, melodramatic but he never allows the film to wallow and get bogged down with these feelings.

Rust and Bone is a movie with many layers and levels as it follows a handicapped women who gets her life back on track, a man on the operates at the shady end of society as well as complex and difficult family dynamic and all these plates are kept spinning perfectly.
