Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 2: Jacques Audiard’s Rust & Bone


Just before it receives its domestic France release, Jacques Audiard’s 7th feature film Rust & Bone (his 4th presented at the Cannes Film Festival) is an adaptation from Craig Davidson’s novel of the same name. Co-written along with his regular contributor Thomas Bidegain, Audiard actually filmed in Cannes, and no the location idea was not spawned from his last visit at the festival, where he won the Grand Prix for A Prophet. Starring Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts, orca whales, blood and a brief presence from Bouli Lanners, our panel appears to be big on the title – it’s currently averaging 3.5 stars out of 5.
