Trivia

Within minutes of her arrival at Marineland in Antibes, in the South of France, for the first day of rehearsal, Marion Cotillard was required to watch the whales perform for a crowd. "I was jet-lagged and sensitive," she recalls. A female trainer assigned to work with her on her character asked what she thought. "I didn't want to be disrespectful, but I said, 'I'm sorry, but I have to be honest - I hate this situation. I hate to see animals doing clown things. I think it's horrible', she remembered.

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.
