    • Excerpt: A triumphant drama by the Dardenne brothers about a heroine who demonstrates grace under pressure.
  • Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
    • Excerpt: Two Days, One Night is a focused, frankly heartbreaking take on personal morals, selfishness, and what we’re willing to sacrifice for others.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: By the end of “Two Days, One Night” we’ve not only met an unusual heroine and her dynamic husband, but feel like we’ve gotten to know a small French town whose denizens offer various shadings of a simple moral issue with complex ramifications.
  • Carlos del Río @ El rincón de Carlos del Río [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Repetitiva, pero con buenos elementos y una gran Marion Cotillard.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Cotillard’s is a tremendous performance of delicate variations, and it elevates Two Days, One Night to another level of compassionate observation.
  • James Jay Edwards @ FilmFracture
    • Excerpt: Jean-Pierre And Luc Dardenne Let Marion Cotillard Shine In ‘Two Days, One Night’
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘Two Days, One Night’ is the turbulent journey of one woman who balances desperation and determination as she attempts to convince her co-workers not to fire her.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Compassionate, suspenseful drama, posing an intriguing ethical dilemma…
  • Roderick Heath @ Ferdy on Films
    • Excerpt: The film correlates depression, an invisible state of crippling, with the equally hard-to-discern nature of financial distress in a modern Western state, where the accoutrements of suburban life give an illusion of stability that can become a perpetual goad to anxiety.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Whether people get hired or fired is not left to one’s peers to decide. The premise is so contrived and far fetched that it makes the nature of the tragedy seem kind of ridiculous.
  • [New – 2/19/15] | MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A genuine horror story, sweaty with a palpable ring of truth about the unending fear that accompanies life on the knife edge of financial despair.
  • Charlie Juhl @ Citizen Charlie
    • Excerpt: Perhaps Cottiard and the Dardenne brothers were meant for each other. They seek raw emotion and no contemporary actress pulls that off better than Cottiard.
  • Carson Lund @ In Review Online
    • Excerpt: In Two Days, One Night, the perspective is strong and clear: Life can be a constant string of challenges, but what’s less vital than succeeding against those hardships is surviving them with dignity intact.
  • Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit
    • Excerpt: Dardenne brothers and Cotillard elevate writer’s-exercise storyline
  • Alan Mattli @ Facing the Bitter Truth [German]
    • Excerpt: The Dardennes lose some of their radical documentarism but gain new political relevance.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
  • Tiago Ramos @ Split Screen [Portuguese]
  • Ron Wilkinson @ Monsters and Critics
    • Excerpt: A lean, no nonsense film crafted in the most brutally honest style of the Dardennes with a stellar performance by Marion Cotillard.
  • [New – 2/19/15] | Andrew Wyatt @ St. Louis Magazine
    • Excerpt: Two Days, One Night is the Dardennes at their best: rumpled, emotionally raw naturalism animated by an irresistible premise.
