The Dardenne Brothers Retrospective: Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, Une nuit)

3 May 2015

Understated social drama infuses this story. Sandra (Marion Cotillard, Rust and Bone) returns to work after a bout of depression to find that her co-workers have voted her out of a job in favour of a €1,000 bonus.

Her boss gives her a weekend to convince them all to change their minds, prompting a series of confrontations and a gamut of emotions—and excuses—that test both Sandra’s ingenuity and her colleagues’ scruples. Dardenne regular Fabrizio Rongione is Sandra’s supportive husband, and Blue is the Warmest Colour’s Catherine Salée is her confidante. But it’s Cotillard who tugs hardest at our consciences in this affecting parable for harsh economic times.
