Two Days, One Night
When Sandra (Marion Cotillard) returns to work after a sick leave for depression, she learns that she is no longer needed. Colleagues have had to choose whether they want a bonus or let Sarah come back. Sandra manages to convince the management to carry through a vote. Now she has two days and one night to convince her colleagues to sacrifice their bonuses so that she can keep her job. The Belgian brothers Dardenne continue to portray the people of Europe's lower economic layer, those living on the edge of the abyss. Cotillard was nominated for an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role. Sydsvenskan's Annika Gustafsson writes: "The film grows to a much larger and deeper portrayal than just that of Sandra's special situation. Behind every door, she calls during her humiliating walk in the small town of Seraing hides different life fates ... The brothers Dardenne have done it again. Enjoy the film and be happy about their refined film art.
