Marion Cotillard in UK Trailer for Dardenne Bros' 'Two Days One Night'
"Sorry to insist…" Artificial Eye has debuted the first full UK trailer for the latest film from the Dardenne Brothers, called Two Days, One Night starring Marion Cotillard. You may have heard buzz about this film back in May when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and went on to open in France later that month. Cotillard plays a working-class woman desperately trying to keep her job as she must convince her co-workers to vote for keeping her in a company-wide decision. It's one of the best films I've seen all year so far, moving swiftly and yet maintaining an incredibly sharp focus on what they're saying and what they're accomplishing. Marion Cotillard looks much more disheveled than before but that's all part of her like look in the film, which plays even more into her character. Riveting to watch - I highly suggest catching this film.
Here's the first UK trailer for the Dardenne Brothers' Two Days, One Night, direct from YouTube:
Description from the film's YouTube listing: "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." Two Days, One Night is the latest from French filmmaking brothers Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne, of the films The Kid With a Bike, Lorna's Silence, Darkness, L'Enfant, The Son, Rosetta and The Promise previously. The film was already released this France in May after first playing at the Cannes Film Festival.
The film premiered at Cannes 2014, and won the ICS Cannes Award. It will also play at TIFF 2014 and the New York Film Festival. Sundance Selects will be releasing Two Days, One Night in the US later this season.
Apparently this is super common in Germany, people will take pay cuts when the company isn't doing so good so that someone can keep their job and when the company improves again, the wages are resolved. What a mad cap idea. this looks good.

it's a good idea and it reflects that world of business and work isn't fair... You don't have to be European to know it...

I love Marion Cotillard. She is amazing. It is great to see in a more normal role.
