TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT ★★★★ Di­rected by Jean-Pierre Dar­denne, Luc Dar­denne. Star­ring Mar­ion Cotil­lard

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

An im­pres­sively flus­tered Cotil­lard is San­dra, an em­ployee at a so­lar-panel fac­tory. The film be­gins with her learn­ing that her em­ploy­ers have de­cided to make her re­dun­dant. Her fel­low em­ploy­ees were asked to choose be­tween ac­cept­ing their yearly bonus and al­low­ing San­dra to be dis­missed. Sadly, they voted for the for­mer. But our proud hero­ine per­suades the bosses to have a sec­ond, se­cret bal­lot. An es­say on sol­i­dar­ity and a ter­rific character study. Club, QFT, Belfast; IFI/Light House, Dublin, 95 min
