De rouille et d’os

Director: Jacques Audiard
Starring: Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts, Bouli Lanners, Celine Sallette, Corinne Masiero
Genre: Drama
Duration: 123 mins

Lonely and destitute, Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts) leaves the north of France for his sister’s house in Antibes after becoming the sole guardian of his estranged five-year-old son Sam. When Ali lands a job as a bouncer in a nearby nightclub, things quickly start to look up for the itinerant father and son. Then one night, after breaking up a fight in the club, Ali meets the radiant Stephanie (Marion Cotillard), and slips her his number. Though Stephanie’s position on the high end of the social spectrum makes romance an unlikely prospect for the pair, a tragic accident finds her reaching out in desperation to Ali. As in Jacques Audiard’s previous films, the director takes two characters in an unlikely relationship, plagued by their inner demons and obsessions, and delivers a deeply dramatic punch. The working class setting is interesting, this is not the glamorous part of the Cote d’Azur.
