Plot – Spoilers:
Rust is set in a small North Italian town where the north-south divide and its related class divide is large. The southern immigrants are working-class with a doomed sense of their own destinies. They resent the educated folk, yet are awed in their presence.

The children here roam unfettered through the vast, empty landscape playing games and exploring their budding adolescence. It’s a kids world that would be fine, so long as grownups don’t poke their nose into it. But one adult does, and destroys them forever.

There are extended sequences in Rust that at times appear to make no sense and even drag, but it all comes together in the end.

Rust (Ruggine) is about a childhood trauma that never goes away.

I found this film rustic and beauteous. It was inauspicious yet analeptic when you’re meditative.

The only things fucked up in this movie:
-the god damn doctor singing
-10yrs olds smoking and talking like truck drivers
-10yrs old girl being able to knock out a grown up man

It was also full of stupid scenes that didn’t have to be there at all
3/10 and I am generous
