Rust and Bone

An instance of clarity or confusion may compel an artist to create a piece of work or embark on a lifetime of searching. Who’d have thought for example that the energy of random crashing waves and wind battered branches would inspire the (mis-named) OpArt of Bridget Riley?

About the film, Mark Elliot says “I’ve no idea if director Jacques Audiard built a whole film around one unique situation in his film Rust and Bone, where a lone woman silences a seething crowd of dangerous men at an illegal street fight, but this unforgettable moment has stayed with me since I first saw it 10 years ago, and I’m sure it’ll leave our film club audience spellbound and moved.”

“It is a passionate and moving love story which surges out of the screen like a flood tide.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian.

“Romantic but pitiless, fearlessly emotional as well as edgy, “Rust and Bone” is a powerhouse.” Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times.

“Cotillard, who’s been waiting since La Vie en Rose for a role this substantial, is at her damaged, devastating best.” Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph.
