Zas! La crisis en toda la cara... Película de sencilla construcción dramática: un dilema diabólico en su sencillez, Marion Cotillard (igual de estupenda y creíble en la alfombra roja que aquí, en camiseta y derrochando desesperación y fragilidad al borde del abismo laboral), y la cámara de los Dardene persiguiéndola en todo momento. Extremadamente realista e incómoda, cine social sin monsergas. Así sí.
If that was an american movie, she would have been offered a job in exchange for sex, at least three times.
Fresco drama belga sobre el desempleo. Sin dejarse llevar por lo dramático y gris, solo por lo optimista. Marion Cotillard nos ofrece una actuación sólida y creíble.
"Two Days, One Night" by the Dardenne brothers. These are the same filmmakers that made one of my favourite films of 2011: "The Kid with a Bike". Now, that one was much better than this one, but this one was also very well made. Marion Cotillard is a great actor and her character felt unique from her other roles.
In this film, she finds out she's getting laid off from work, unless she can convince her co-workers to keep her instead of a bonus. And hints the title, she only has the weekend to do so. Everything felt incredibly natural and I really liked the variety of reactions from her co-workers with each different interaction. It's a great concept and I thought it was delivered well, although there could have been some improvements. There were one or two points where the story had an opportunity to go a specific direction, and at either of those points, if it had gone one way and not the other, I probably would have like the movie a lot more. I mean, they can write their story however they want, but I personally would have found it to be a much better story otherwise. It was still really well done and it's something that I will be seeing again.
I could understand the struggle of the main character. However, in this movie I found dull and with an extremely repetitive circle.
