Did You Know?

Trivia

Marion Cotillard is an environmental activist and unabashed animal lover and has been a spokeswoman for Greenpeace. The idea of a movie where whales are kept captive in tanks for the amusement of the public was against everything she stood for. Cotillard said she forgot all about the conversation until she was cast in "Rust and Bone" - a job she accepted because of Jacques Audiard, and because Stéphanie was an intriguing mystery - and she had a scene with the orcas kept at Marineland Antibes, in the south of France. Then it came back to her. "It's me now in this sea land that I hate so much. But then I met the trainers and I met the animals and I finally considered them as animals and not as freaks, I mean as poor animals turned into freaks by human beings. So, yeah, I had to do the job, but I will never go back to a Marineland. I respect the trainers, but I don't understand how you put such an animal in a swimming pool. It's beyond understanding."

Marion Cotillard shines
26 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Put in charge of his young son, Matthias Schoenaerts is Alain leaves Belgium for Antibes to live with his sister and her husband as a family. He's a low-rent street fighter. Alain's bond with Marion Cotillard as Stephanie, a killer whale trainer, grows deeper after Stephanie suffers a horrible accident.

I didn't find myself that involved in Alain's storyline. The story is pitiless and relentless. Marion Cotillard is much more compelling. The movie drags every time she's off the screen.

I wish this was a movie concentrating all on Stéphanie's story. I found her utterly fascinating.
