Perhaps it was my copy but subtitles where not consistent throughout so story difficult to follow. The performances were good but story line was all over the place. Fighting/security/son/accident.....all of these things did not tie was more about him than anything and I felt they missed the boat on all of it.

2 hours I would rather have back. Disappointed that I had no interest in either of these characters.

if human 'bone' is broken, it can't be complete cured. how vulnerable humans are. why did it well rust. nonetheless life has a value to live and is enough beautiful! why I recollect Endo's inscription? \"Humanity is so sad, Lord, and the ocean so blue.\"

I guess I needed to read the fine print. Did not know it was all sub titles. Not a bad movie though. Maybe something I would not pay for again.

I really liked this movie and I keep thinking about it. The characters are very real and the acting is impressive.

Jacques Audiard's Rust and Bone is an unapologetic melodrama rendered in what you might call semi-stylized neo-expressionistic realism, and it works like gangbusters. Full Review

The New York Times
Rust and Bone is a strong, emotionally replete experience, and also a tour de force of directorial button pushing. Mr. Audiard is a canny showman, adept at manipulating the audience's feelings and expectations with quick edits and well-chosen songs. Full Review

Washington Post
Turns out to be one of the most transportingly romantic movies of the year, one that finds the most stirring emotion in struggle rather than in ginned-up melodrama or easy resolution. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
This gritty examination of physical and psychological wounds offers a superb performance by Marion Cotillard, who speaks volumes with her eyes, and a less convincing one by her lead co-star. Full Review
David Fear
Time Out New York
Lyrical touches and the most moving use ever of Katy Perry's "Firework" almost cancel out a cheap-shot third-act tragedy, yet it's the actors that save the film from soaping itself into Euro-miserablist irrelevance. Full Review
