Two Days, One Night opens in Toronto – Jan, 16, 2015 [fr]
Written and directed by the Dardenne brothers, “Two Days, One Night”, which competed for the Palme d’Or, opens in Toronto on January 16, 2015.
Written and directed by the Dardenne brothers, the Belgian sibling team who made Rosetta, The Son, the drama Two Days, One Night, which is starring international movie star and Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, competed for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
Sandra (Marion Cotillard) has just returned to work after recovering from an illness. Realizing that the company can operate with one less employee, management tells Sandra she is to be let go while the remaining employees will each receive a bonus. Over the course of a weekend, Sandra, often with the help of her loving husband (Fabio Rongione), races against time to convince each of her fellow co-workers to sacrifice their much-needed bonuses in order for her to keep her job. With each encounter, Sandra is brought into a different world with unexpected results while her fate hangs in the balance. The Dardennes have brought an extremely relevant social inquiry and turned it into a powerful statement on community solidarity.
