Rust and Bone

De rouille et d’os (Jacques Audiard, 2012) has one person in it who is physically handicapped. This allows it to make the point that everyone is handicapped in some way. It does this in a naturalistic style, which is a nice change from all the comic-book films around. Everyone in Rust and Bone who is not involuntarily disabled sets about either disabling either themself or else everyone they come into contact with. Or both.

It was very brave of that Marion Cotillard to have her legs cut off just for a role in a film.
