Merely the premise of "Rust and Bone" sounds uncomfortably maudlin: A wayward single father and part-time fighter falls into an unexpected romance with a beautiful whale trainer who's just lost both her legs below the knee in a freak accident. Both must undergo drastic transformations that render them as vulnerable as newborn babies. Both are literally and metaphorically broken and must help each other heal.
"Rust and Bone," Jacques Audiard's soaring story of love, loss and killer whales, was named best picture at the London Film Festival on Saturday.
There was Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman, red carpet glamour and a crop of new Academy Award contenders _ but this was also the year the global financial crisis exploded onto movie screens at Cannes.

Jacques Audiard is on a quest to revive the B movie.
Jacques Audiard's new movie features poverty, bare-knuckle fighting and a killer whale attack. The French director says it's a sunny romance.
Audiard said the original notion for his new feature "Rust and Bone" was to make "a B movie with a star" _ the star being France's Marion Cotillard, whose best-actress Oscar for Edith Piaf biopic "La Vie En Rose" has spawned a Hollywood career.
"If you look at American studios, the big productions have nothing to do with reality," he said.
