More Info:
  • Ty Burr

    This is a small, compassionate gem of a movie, one that’s rooted in details of people and place but that keeps opening up onto the universal.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    As a parable on karma, capitalism and Darwinian corporate politics, Two Days, One Night can often feel brutal. As a testament to connection, service, sacrifice and self-worth, it’s a soaring, heart-rending hymn.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The story demanded — and deserves — the services of a singular actress. Ms. Cotillard’s international stardom doesn’t hurt, of course, but the invaluable gift she brings to the production is her ability to play a working woman in naturalistic style while giving a transcendent performance.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Her shoulders slumped, her eyes weary, her gait heavy, Ms. Cotillard moves past naturalism into something impossible to doubt and hard to describe. Sandra is an ordinary person in mundane circumstances, but her story, plainly and deliberately told, is suspenseful, sobering and, in the original, fear-of-God sense of the word, tremendous.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Two Days, One Night is a small miracle of a movie, a drama so purely humane that it makes most attempts at audience uplift look crass and calculated by comparison.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kim Newman

    Even if you’ve skipped the Dardennes’ work until now, this is a talking-point movie — and an outstanding lead performance — you need to see. It’s a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it’s honest right to its perfectly judged ending.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    A tense dramatic situation and a subtly magnificent central performance from Marion Cotillard add up to an outstanding new movie from the Dardenne brothers.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Dave Calhoun

    Most importantly, the film involves us: it draws us into the debate, makes us complicit, demands that we have an opinion, and then upends that same opinion a few minutes later. It's engaging and rousing.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Jessica Kiang

    perhaps the greatest achievement is in how brilliantly the film balances the trademark Dardennes social conscience with a conceit that plays out almost like a ticking-clock thriller, as well as being a deeply felt character study.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The Dardennes once again find a richness of human experience that dwarfs most movies made on an epic canvas.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    In a series of deft vignettes, the Dardennes offer up a microcosm of an entire working-class contingent, and each vignette is a universe all to itself.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    With her wide, sad eyes and quiet air of embarrassment tinged with pride, Cotillard's Sandra is asking a question not only of her colleagues but of the audience, too: Are we willing to put aside our own self-interest for the sake of empathy? Are we cowardly or brave? Cotillard's exquisite performance makes you feel every ounce of the weight of that dilemma.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    The chasm of the wealth gap and the slow destruction of the middle class should matter to us all, and films like Two Days, One Night remind us of the human faces affected by corporate greed.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Much of the movie relies on Cotillard's jittery expressions as she veers from tentatively hopeful to despondent and back again, sometimes within a matter of minutes, reflecting the ever-changing stability of job security among the lower class.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There is strength in simplicity, something the Dardenne brothers' Two Days, One Night and its brilliant star, Marion Cotillard, prove emphatically.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    That Two Days, One Night retains such an organic sensibility, even with a major star in the lead, is credit to both filmmakers and actress.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    The awkwardness, the humiliation and the central unfairness of the position these folks have been put in is what filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne are exploring in Two Days, One Night — a slice of pressurized middle-class life they've made so real, it feels a bit like a documentary.

    NPR Full Review
  • Michelle Orange

    What anchors Two Days, One Night, and eases its gaps, is Cotillard's extraordinary performance.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    It’s a film that captures humanity at its best and its worst, sometimes simultaneously.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • David Rooney

    It's enriched by signature qualities – the humanistic, nonjudgmental gaze, the absence of sentimentality, the ultra-naturalistic style – that have always distinguished the Belgian brothers' fine body of work.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Cotillard, who earned a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her performance, plays the character as a woman hanging on by the barest of threads.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    As is, Cotillard (nominated for best actress) scrupulously avoids melodrama. There's enough without it, in watching a story of an ordinary woman argue for her dignity, her colleagues' better instincts and her own livelihood.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    From the theme of global downsizing, the filmmakers wring humor, heartbreak, suspense and stirring social drama. Cotillard, a consummate actress, fits like a natural into the workaday world of the Dardennes (Rosetta, The Son, The Kid With a Bike).

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Farran Smith Nehme

    The cast is excellent, particularly Timur Magomedgadzhiev as a conscience-stricken co-worker, but it’s Cotillard who’s in nearly every scene. Desperate, downtrodden, but grasping at each shred of hope, Cotillard — who won an Oscar playing Edith Piaf in 2007’s “La Vie en Rose” — carries the whole film.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    She (Cotillard) is the center of attention throughout, yet what matters is her willingness to conspire in the Dardennes’ plea for justice.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    This is another hugely admirable entry in the Dardenne canon: nothing all that new, perhaps, but as thoughtful, humane and superbly composed as we have, very fortunately, come to expect from them.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    The Dardennes believe in human value and social order being rooted in a sense of solidarity, a staggering consciousness of community that brims with a sensitivity to place, movement, and emotion.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Cotillard can be an exquisitely subtle actress, with expressive eyes and a face that are made for quiet suffering. Even when Two Days, One Night drags a bit, Cotillard’s performance remains compelling. Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    Two Days, One Night is well made, and Cotillard and the rest of the cast give assured performances, but its optimism is desperate. By no means the Dardennes' best work, one wonders if they shouldn't perhaps stray outside of their comfort zone.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It’s sincere and intelligent — but it’s weak as a social statement and even weaker as drama.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Cotillard gets so persuasively inside Sandra’s skin that it’s not at all surprising that this performance has earned her another Oscar nomination. And she does so without resorting to shameless, award-baiting grandstanding.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Two Days, One Night is deceptively slight of drama; it's simply a procession of real moments encountered by a simple character deserving more happiness than life allows, fleshed out by an extraordinary actor.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The Dardennes know how to tell low-key stories effectively, and Cotillard’s Academy Award-nominated performance builds toward the unexpected ending.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    The resulting film is an exceptionally crafted drama, anchored by the brothers’ mastery of their skills and Cotillard’s breathtaking performance.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The Dardennes are aces at these small-scale human dramas, and Two Days, One Night is almost without flaw.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    If you see it and wonder what the fuss was about, look no further than its star, the face that ate up another awards season.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Two Days, One Night offers a look into the lives of the everyday workers of the world -- the ones for whom a thousand-euro bonus (about $1,100 U.S.) can solve a heck of a lot of problems.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    Two Days, One Night is timely and timeless, a social statement about current economic conditions and a parable about individual and community. Cotillard's performance is revelatory, one to be admired and studied for generations.
