Built like an old, beat-up bomber - not necessarily the sleekest or most reliable, but perfectly engineered to drop emotional projectiles on its audience.

A slow meander through the lives of two very different people who make a connection. Often difficult to watch because it is raw emotion and pain coming at you from all corners, it is still fascinating because of two intriguing performances.

Audiard visits a physicality that isn't necessarily female or male, but of the body, and toward the body, as in Cotillard's wide, lidded eyes when she watches him punching, thumping and bleeding in illegal bare-fisted takedown fights.

It's a film for people who believe that fallen souls aren't inevitably destined to become lost ones.

...while all the admittedly well-wrought details engage us on an intellectual level and keep us watching, the film doesn't linger in the imagination the way truly great cinema does

Rust and Bone is a tough, emotionally raw movie, but its not a difficult watch, and its a very skillfully rendered piece of neo-realism.

The notion of strings-free sex gets a good working over from director Jacques Audiard (A Prophet), who takes as much pride in exploring the workings of Stephanie's troubled mind as he does in digitally removing her legs.

The film achieves what all dramatic films should strive for: complete audience empathy for the main characters. I cared for these two so deeply, and the many, many moments of quiet triumph gave me rushes of joy. A beautiful triumph of precision.

For a film that deals in different forms of agony it's rather pleasant. A portrait of family that's refreshing with the right emotional punch.

Pulsates with life, romance, and bare-knuckle boxing

This multi-layered film with its characters tossed like flotsam on fate's giant, unpredictable waves drenches us in the intimate details of characters

Two damaged souls find solace together in this gritty drama in which physical pain and disfigurement play a key role ... a stunningly delivered exposition
James Plath

Audiard crafts a film with logical scenic construction yet surprising turns of events, with the drama never devolving into melodrama.

Rather like a persuasive pick-up artist, I'm not sure Rust & Bone is a film I'd want to spend a second night with, for fear of shattering the emotional illusion.

A 'Salt of the Earth' saga plumbing the depths of the human soul.

Through restraint, French director Jacques Audiard does a better job of tugging on viewers' hearts than most filmmakers can achieve with excess.

Filmmaking this self-indulgent screams "refund" in any language.
