DE ROUILLE ET D'OS - RUST AND BONE is a subtitled French language drama. It explores the unusual relationship that develops between a tough former kick-boxer and a female whale-trainer after she suffers a horrific accident.

Language

There are uses of strong language ('f**k'), as well as some milder bad language, including uses of 'bitch', 'bloody', 'shit' and 'crap'.

Sex

The male character is seen having sex with women he's picked up on two occasions. In the first scene the man has sex with a woman who is standing against a wall. In the seconds scene, he has sex with a woman in bed, thrusting from behind as the woman lies on her stomach. Although there is no sight of breast nudity, the second scene does reveal a glimpse of the woman's bare buttocks as the man thrusts into her. There are also some scenes of sex between the two main characters, the woman being a double amputee. In their first encounter, the male character is shown thrusting between the naked stumps of the female character with sight of his bare buttocks. Later, a short scene shows the woman riding the man in bed. There is no strong sexual detail.

Violence

The male character takes part in organised bare-knuckle fights. He is shown kneeing his rival in the face after he places him in a neck hold grip, resulting in blood splatter from the man's mouth as he falls to the ground. In another fight, the same character receives several brutal punches to his own face, which is shown to be bleeding badly. Although the fight scenes create a strong impression of violence, the detail of blood and injury is brief and doesn't dwell on the infliction of pain or injury.

There are some scenes showing characters involved in accidents, including the collapse of a water stage structure during a whale show and a young boy falling into an icy lake.
