Excerpt: A difficult, hard edged, unsettling movie which covers some difficult subject matter. Ultimately, the view is rewarded with a human drama that is life affirming, and shown the human spirit at its most fragile and best, inspite of, and despite the difficulties that life presents people with!
Summary: Jacques Audiard has a gift for uncompromising, gritty, good news stories. The
fairy tale endings of two of the three films I've seen of his don't jar as they
might with a less skilful director. This isn't my favourite of the three –
his first film, Read My Lips, remains the best of his I've seen. This one is
nonetheless pretty good and pairs a solo dad whose cachet is martial arts with
an amputee who trained orcas till the accident. And it does work out.
Conclusion: The film is a realistic tale of the turmoil and tortures of life, the ability to help one another and make it through the tough times and enjoying the good times which sometimes can be short. This is a subtitled film, however don't let this put you off. The story is well told by the actors through facial and body language, very easy to follow with easy to read subtitles for reference.
Summary: Marion Cottilard is worth going along to this for. Damn she is fine even without the legs. I got dragged to this 'arty' film by a girl who likes to see depressing stuff apparently and if you are going to get dragged along to watch 'art' it mayas well have Marion in it. Kept me awake.
Summary: This was a really interesting movie although you need to be in the right mood to watch it. It was quite dark in places and I had some difficulty with watching some of the scenes where the little boy got hurt. Definitely worth seeing though. You very quickly get used to the subtitles, definitely not your typical Hollywood blockbuster type movie!
Summary: Behind the sugary coating of the romance at the heart of the story, there is a violent critic of society. A savage society in which disabled people have to stand their ground for acceptance; a wild society in which outsiders have to fight to survive and feed their children. Calling "RUST AND BONE" a romance is misleading.

Summary: This movie was great, it showed two people brought together by fate both with a different set of problems in their lives that they did not expect and had to overcome. I found this film very inspiring and was able to feel the different points of views that each of the people faced. Brilliant directing by Jacques Audiard and I would recommend everyone to watch it.
Summary: This movie is about our frailties as human beings and our strength of spirit to overcome them. It is also about finding love and acceptance during the most challenging transitions in life. Beautiful story. Excellent acting by everyone!
