The Kid With a Bike, the last film from sibling directors Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne, was one of the best films of 2011, and will probably end up standing as one of the best films of the decade. So we’d be excited at the prospect of any new film from the brothers. The fact that their new movie, Two Days, One Night, stars Marion Cotillard is just a lovely bonus. The film will premiere at Cannes next month, and the first new Dardenne Brothers trailer film is below.
In the film, Cotillard plays woman who, in one weekend, must save her own job by convincing her colleagues to give up their bonuses. Co-stars include Fabrizio Rongione and Olivier Gourmet.
There are no English subtitles in this trailer, sadly, but you’ll be able to get an idea of the tone even if you don’t know the language. And it’s always good to see Cotillard work.
Sundance Selects has US rights to the film, but we probably won’t have a release date until after Cannes. Poster via Thompson on Hollywood.
