The Darnennes Brothers‘ (Rosetta, La Promesse, The Kid With A Bike) latest film, Two Days, One Night premiered this year at Cannes, and will be released in the UK this August through Artificial Eye.
Two Days, One Night has been picked up by IFC Films and Sundance Selects here in the States, which will certainly help its chances at getting a spine number in the Criterion Collection
Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne continue to mine the lives of individuals faced with potentially tragic consequences in this powerful drama. Academy Award-winner Marion Cotillard is impressive as Sandra, a woman who returns to work after suffering from depression to find out that her colleagues have chosen to take a bonus at the expense of her job. She has just one weekend to change their minds. What follows is arguably the Dardenne brothers’ greatest cinematic achievement to date.
