The French movie "Rust & Bone," an unflinching and sometimes grueling look at a romance between a disabled whale trainer (Marion Cotillard) and a security-guard-slash-kickboxer-slash-single-dad (Matthias Schoenaerts), features two songs by Grammy-winning Wisconsinite Bon Iver (aka Justin Vernon).

The movie, directed by Jacques Audiard, has quite a bit of original music composed by Alexandre Despat, but it also includes Bon Iver's "Wash." from his much-praised 2011 self-titled album, and "Wolves (Act I and II)" from his 2008 release "For Emma, Forever Ago."

The Bon Iver tracks underscore the movie's often-downbeat mood, and are used in both the opening and the closing, setting a tone for a movie that many say will earn Oscar nominations for Cotillard. Other bands on the soundtrack include B-52s ("Love Shack"), Lykke Li ("I Follow Rivers") and Django Django ("Firewater").
