Cotillard’s co-star Matthias Schoenaerts puts in a career-making stint as a straight shooting free spirit who shuns responsibility in favor of a life on the edge of adrenaline. His relationship with Marion Cotillard in this film is loaded with nuances that will keep you thinking long after the film is done.
