Summary: A single father helps a whale trainer to regain the will to live after a terrible accident.
Review: I watched “Rust and Bone” with perplexity. Marion Cotillard plays a whale trainer who had lost both legs in a work accident, passing through a deep depression. That’s when her new friend Ali, regardless of his cold attitudes and lack of sensibility, will have an important role on her return to a normal life. His way will change too, when facing difficulties with his son. The good and bad incidents were well weighted to provoke our senses - tough moments, rudeness and disillusion are balanced with tenderness, hope and regret, in a movie that is engrossing most of the time, despite of trying to gain notoriety by lingering on not so crucial aspects such as the street fights.Relevant awards: London, Valladolid, Cabourg.
