Rust and Bone Trailer




I have to say, I’m kind of blown away by the UK trailer from Rust and Bone. I had a little Cannes expectations going in, but found myself watching it three times before posting, because there is so much great imagery.


As mentioned above, Rust and Bone got a great boost out of Cannes this year where it competed for the elusive Palme d’Or award.  The biggest prize at Cannes Film Fest. The Jacques Audiard directed film that stars Marion Cotillard and Mathias Schoenaerts did not win the award, but it received great reviews. This has propelled Sony Pictures Classics to release the film in the UK and the states.


“Ali leaves for Antibes with a backpack and his young son in tow. Penniless, he seeks shelter at his sister’s place. Right away he finds work as a bouncer at a club where he meets Stéphanie, a killer whale trainer. She is beautiful and self-confident while he is anything but. Months pass and he gets a phone call. The young woman has lost her legs in an accident…”



Rust and Bone has been described as a classic melodrama really, one that actually lands an emotional punch. The film written for the screen by Audiard & Thomas Bidegain, its adapted from a craig Davidson short story. Marion Cotillard then made the film a go.


Cotillard has had some major success in France over the last couple of years. She one of the few actresses in the world that really doesn’t need America. She’s starred in some of Frances biggest movies since La Vie en rose in 2007.  Her french career is actually pretty amazing. She also had one of the biggest French hits in 2010 alongside, Jean Dujardin. That film, Les petits mouchoirs, made almost $60 million dollars in France, and it came out before Jean Dujardin’s Oscar breakout role in The Artist. Anyway, I’ve always respected actors who continue to do great work at home. Rust and Bone may be another French hit. Check her out in this trailer. She really looks to be on her game.
