Good Morning, World

Today we wish a happy 69th -- ooh la la! -- birthday to the great and masterful director Jacques Audiard, one of our all-time faves! These snaps are of Matthias Schoenaerts and Marion Cotillard in the 2012 masterpiece Rust and Bone, of course. I've seen everything back to 2005's The Beat That My Heart Skipped (oh Romain Duris!) and I recommend that along with every single thing since then, but I've seen nothing earlier -- I know I should see Vincent Cassel in 2001's Read My Lips but what about the even earlier ones? Anybody seen either of his first two, See How They Fall or A Self-Made Hero? Killer casts in both -- Kassovitz! Trintignant! Audiard really jumped right in with both feet right from the start!

What a great movie. So physical. You feel the blood, the sweat and the tears.

While I didn't enjoy watching the movie, I do remember Matthias being a passionate animal. 😈

I need to watch rewatch this. Matthias Schoenaerts! Wow. What a man.

Read my lips is amazing. An hitchcockian character study.
I ADORED Un héros très discret when it was out in theater, years ago. I think I had too much expectations when I rewatched it.
Still essential viewing if you like Audiard.
