Jacques Audiard’s Rust and Bone alternates between so many different tones — from tragedy to romance to action to drama — without even the slightest trace of difficulty. It’s a film that’s impossible to quite get ahold of or predict just where it’s going next. And it’s a testament  to the cast (in particular Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts) that they are so deftly able to weave in between the jumps and changes in story. Marion Cotillard stars as Stephanie, a killer whale trainer, who after a freak accident, loses both her legs. But what could become an ‘Oh-pity-me’ melodrama instead becomes a story of a woman’s self-discovery and liberation.

In the following interview with Marion Cotillard, she discusses the difficulties (or lack thereof) in playing a double amputee, discovering her character while shooting, and her role in James Gray’s upcoming Nightingale.  Hit the jump to watch.

    Can this sweaty 16 yr old interviewer ask some better questions…instead of the same boring q’s every interviewer asks about what was it like, what’s the approach, etc. You could tell by her demeanor she looked really really tired of answering the same questions.

    How come people only asked Cotillard questions about TDKR before the film came out? Now, that she is able to talk about the film and her character, journalists can’t be assed asking intelligent questions about the character.
