New Images From The Dardenne Brothers’ ‘Two Days, One Night’ Starring Marion Cotillard

New Images From The Dardenne Brothers' 'Two Days, One Night' Starring Marion Cotillard

While you might think the casting of a major star could potentially change the format of the niche the Dardenne brothers have carved out—telling intimate, often wrenching, human dramas—that’s not the case with “Two Days, One Night.” While Marion Cotillard is in the lead role, it’s still very much a small-scale story, and one that earned almost universal rave reviews earlier this year at Cannes. And now more images have arrived of the face that powers the picture.

Co-starring Fabrizio Rongione, the premise is a simple one, following a woman who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues they must give up their bonuses in order for her to keep her job. And the result, as usual, is terrific, with Jessica Kiang falling for the movie on the Croisette writing in her review she was “completely immersed” in the picture’s “plain-spoken yet impossibly resonant rhythms practically from the first frame.” It would seem the Dardennes haven’t missed a beat.

No date yet, but Sundance Selects will release the film in the U.S. Pictures below.

My two favorite actresses are: Marion Cotillard and Cate Blanchett, they share my first place.

But is so incredible that in this present moment we have so many actresses that are in their own league: Tilda Swinton, Viola Davis, Marion Cotillard, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep are a few examples.

They're so unique and talented that is a joy to watch them.

But I do agree with Stergios, Cotillard has this thing that is deeper, her acting is everytime a state-of-art.

Agreed, Stergios. Cotillard has quietly stepped into Streepian territory as an actor, and is now practically peerless in the craft. Did you see her performance in "The Immigrant"? Haunting & perfect.


Give Marion Cotillard her second Oscar already! If she won't win in 2015, it will be the biggest injustice in the history of the Academy Awards.
