First Look: Marion Cotillard In The Dardennes’ ‘Two Days, One Night'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist March 14, 2014 at 9:04AM

Probably the closest the French auteur siblings have ever gotten to a "mainstream" film (though its French language will ensure its place in arthouses, instead of multiplexes), Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's "Two Days, One Night" is notable not just for being the next effort from the usually flawless filmmakers, but it boasts a major name in the lead role, in what sounds like an unusually topical movie from the directors.

Two Days, One Night

Probably the closest the Belgian auteur siblings have ever gotten to a "mainstream" film (though its French language will ensure its place in arthouses, instead of multiplexes), Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne's "Two Days, One Night" is notable not just for being the next effort from the usually flawless filmmakers, but also boasting a major name in the lead role, in what sounds like an unusually topical movie from the directors.

Marion Cotillard stars in the movie, and the first images from flick have arrived. Fabrizio Rongione and Olivier Gourmet co-star in the film that follows a young woman who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues they must give up their bonuses in order for her to keep her job. It sounds like the Dardennes will be lending a commentary on the economic crises that have gripped Europe the past few years, in what already sounds like a potentially wrenching tale.

Sundance Selects already has the U.S. rights for the movie, and while there's no release date yet, you can probably go ahead and assume it'll be at the Cannes Film Festival in May. [Diaphana via The Film Stage]
