Yes, the Dardennes have done it again. It’s almost a crime how easy they make it look, and this year they hit Cannes with another new film, and as usual, they earned rave reviews. Now, “Two Days, One Night” is making its way to theatres in the UK and the festival circuit in North America, and a new clip has arrived.
Marion Cotillard leads the movie telling a very simple story, following a woman who has one weekend to convince her co-workers to give up their bonuses so she can keep her job. And while that might seem like a bit of a downer, Jessica Kiang wrote in her review out of Cannes that the film is ultimately “uplifting and affecting.” And of course, Cotillard is in top form, with this clip showing what she can do by not saying a word, and simply listening to Petula Clark‘s “La nuit n’en fini plus.”
“Two Days, One Night” opens in theatres and on VOD in the U.K. on August 22nd. There’s no U.S. release date yet, but the film will screen at TIFF and NYFF.
