Foreign Language Oscar Shortlist: A Preview Of Possibilities, Part 2

18 December 2014 4:17 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Below is Part 2 of my annual look at the films that have a shot at making the Foreign Language Oscar shortlist. There are 83 submissions this year with some truly remarkable films in the bunch — and no 100% frontrunner. Here’s a refresher on how the nine films are chosen for the shortlist which is expected to be revealed tomorrow: The phase one committee determines six of the candidates, and the other three entries are selected by the Foreign Language Film Award Executive Committee. For the profiles below and yet to come, I spoke with the directors of the films about their inspirations and expectations. In many cases, I also checked in with the U.S. distributor about why they acquired the movies. Below is a look at the second group of four titles that have generated serious buzz over the past several weeks of screenings, Q&As and consulate lunches. For »

Will a Foreign-Language Film Ever Win a Best Pic Oscar?

4 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Will a foreign-language film ever win an Oscar for best picture? The odds looked a bit more favorable when, in 2009, the Academy opted to increase its top category to 10 nominees — a tactic that was clearly aimed at better accommodating the Christopher Nolan movies of the world, but also one that, some of us dared to hope, might have the happy side effect of allowing a subtitled offering to slip into the running.

Since that overhaul (during which the Academy has gone from 10 best picture nominees to a more flexible “between five and 10”), exactly one offshore production, Michael Haneke’s French-language “Amour,” has benefited from the expansion. Progress of a sort, perhaps, especially considering that before “Amour,” the Academy had seen fit to nominate only eight such films for its top prize (roughly one per decade).

Yet it’s still disappointingly paltry, given the rich bounty of first-rate imports we’ve »

The Dardenne Brothers on Marion Cotillard ‘Disappearing’ Into ‘Two Days, One Night’

3 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne are effusive talkers on any number of subjects, but good luck getting them to shut up about the best movie they’ve seen recently — a marvel of beautifully observed realism, carefully grounded in the quotidian details of working-class life, and featuring an outstanding big-screen debut by a young actor with no formal training.

The picture that has the Belgian brothers so enraptured is “Boyhood,” Richard Linklater’s much-acclaimed, 12-years-in-the-making coming-of-age epic.

“It’s the first film I’ve seen in a very, very long time where the characters are human beings, and they disappear into the fabric of the film. They’re just people,” says Jean-Pierre, 63.

“It’s about ordinary existence, ordinary life,” continues Luc, 60, generally the more loquacious of the two. “(The filmmaker) trusts mundane existence and allows it to exist.”

If the Dardennes were less inclined toward modesty, they might just as »

‘Two Days One Night’ Trailer: Marion Cotillard Needs Your Vote

14 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The Dardenne Brothers (The Kid With a Bike) aren’t known for working with actors who might also be found in a Christopher Nolan tentpole, but Marion Cotillard is that rare talent who can seem at ease in both environments. And she seems perfectly cast in Two Days, One Night, the new film from the Dardennes, in […]

Watch: Trailer for Dardenne Brothers' 'Two Days, One Night' Starring Marion Cotillard

13 November 2014 4:34 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I am not incredibly well versed in the works of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne. I believe the only film I have seen of theirs was their most recent, The Kid with a Bike. I was not terribly impressed with it, but I can understand why many film fanatics would respond to their stuff. Their new film, Two Days, One Night, premiered at this years Cannes Film Festival. I heard next to nothing about it coming out of the festival, which could be a bad sign. But, quite frankly, I did not hear much of anything out of the festival this year. The film, which will be released in the Us on December 24th (I'm assuming in an extremely limited amount of theaters for awards consideration), has a new trailer for you to watch. It stars Marion Cotillard, and that in itself is enough to give the film a chance. She has an immense talent, »

DVD Review: 'Two Days, One Night'

26 October 2014 3:53 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆After the critically adored The Kid with a Bike (2011) saw celebrated Belgian filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne take a softer approach to telling yet another tale of urban struggle, the brothers return with Two Days, One Night (2014), an agonisingly realistic story about the lengths to which one woman goes to preserve her mental stability. Having avoided casting big-name stars in their previous eight films, the pair go against expectation and install Academy Award-winning French star Marion Cotillard, who gives perhaps her most perfectly realised performance to date. She stars as Sandra, a young mother recouping after the debilitating effects depression has had on her mental and physical wellbeing.

When Josh and Benny Safdie Met Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne

8 October 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From the brothers Warner to the brothers Weinstein, the movie business has long been a fraternal affair, though sibling director teams (Coen, Hughes, Wachowski) are a relatively new concept, and one that always inspired a raft of predictable questions: How exactly does a directing team collaborate? Does one concentrate on the visual elements while the other works with the actors? Do they stand side-by-side on the set like a mythological two-headed beast? It was in this gentle spirit of inquiry — and cultural exchange — that the two sets of brother directors with films in the main slate of this year’s New York Film Festival sat down to meet last Sunday afternoon, on a large yellow sofa in the patron lounge of Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall.

At first glance, Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne don’t have very much in common with Josh and Benny Safdie aside from the fact »

Tiff 2014: ‘Two Days, One Night’ another humanizing powerhouse from the Dardennes

Two Days, One Night

Written and directed by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne

Belgium/Italy/France, 2014

Sandra (Marion Cotillard) spends the majority of Two Days, One Night knocking on the doors of her co-workers and modestly pleading with them to decline a significant pay bonus so that she can save her job and her family. Some are instantly receptive to her request while others blow her off and even resort to violence. It’s an episodic structure that is executed with measured precision and tension from master Belgian auteurs and critics-darlings Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (The Kid with a Bike). Acting as the antithesis of the hardworking, stubborn, and desperate titular character from the directing duo’s immaculate Rosetta (1999), Sandra’s glowing and unwavering empathy towards those who stand in opposition to her is the crux of her character and the streamlined grace that runs through this humbled marvel of a film. »

The House of Magic Review

21 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Within the past few years a variety of hard-hitting, somewhat bleak dramas have hailed out of Belgium. From Our Children, to The Kid with a Bike, to the recently Academy Award nominated The Broken Circle Breakdown – it’s a nation currently going through something of a bright patch. However, sadly that doesn’t seem to extend to films made for a younger crowd, as filmmakers Jeremy Degruson and Ben Stassen present the underwhelming, albeit enchanting, children’s animation The House of Magic.

Murray Blue voices Thunder, an abandoned kitten who seeks shelter at the home of veteran magician Lawrence (Doug Stone), much to the displeasure of his other pets Maggie the Mouse (Shanelle Gray) and Jack the Rabbit (George Babbit), who are jealous of the affection shown towards him. Finally feeling settled and at home in this fantastical, outlandish new environment, living amongst a host of magical creations, it could be a short-lived stay, »

Cannes Review: ‘Two Days, One Night’ Sees Marion Cotillard Working for the Weekend

23 May 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

“The only way to stop crying is to fight for your job.” One can rarely accuse Belgian filmmakers Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne of cutting to the chase, but less than ten minutes pass in Two Days, One Night before Manu (Fabrizio Rongione) plainly explains to Sandra (Marion Cotillard) — and the viewer — what she must do: spend the weekend convincing her colleagues that they should forsake their bonuses so she can keep her job at a local solar panel manufacturer. It’s the closest thing the Dardennes have had to a high-concept premise. These Belgian brothers specialize in unscored, handheld dramas about their country’s working class, and while Days is no exception in its naturalistic depiction of low-key economic concerns, it does offer a simple hook and a bonafide movie star. One can hardly say the same for L’Enfant or The Kid with a Bike (no offense, Cécile De France). However, said »

2014 Cannes Critics’ Panel Day 6: Dardennes Receive a Bonus with “Two Days, One Night” & “Still the Water” Floats

21 May 2014 7:55 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Cannes May 20th – Day 6.

Past the midway point, this morning’s 8:30 a.m. screening proved that The Dardennes might be the first to three-peat. Palme d’Or winners with Rosetta (1999) and L’Enfant (2005), the Belgium trio (including Marion Cotillard) are currently sitting at the pole position among our critics with a solid 4-star rating average. Minimalist, sprawling in microscopic scope with a Twelve Angry Men-like formula, the world’s larger issues get truncated into a mother-wife trying to safe her job and potentially, keep the family nest intact. With a resolution that could have ended in a manner of ways and still work, it’s disarming how the Dardennes manage to immerse the viewer in this heroine’s plight and flight with the utmost of ease. Two Days, One Night is the buzz title of the fest so far. There last film, The Kid with a Bike (2011) won the Grand Prix. »

Review: Marion Cotillard is the soul of slender, stirring 'Two Days, One Night'

20 May 2014 9:07 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Cannes - There are few faces -- individual, honest-to-God faces -- in the movies today quite like that of Marion Cotillard, her startling beauty assembled from oddly sized, quizzical features that mightn't hang quite right on anyone else's bones. She looks like no one else, and yet never quite resembles herself on screen either: it's a face that different angles and contexts can turn from silken to sallow, hunter to hunted, goddess to guttersnipe. It is, in other words, the closest thing to a character actor's face that a cover girl can have. Small wonder, then, that Cotillard is the actress to whom those sober bastions of back-of-the-head realism, Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne, have turned to headline their very first star vehicle. (Some may cite Cecile De France in "The Kid With a Bike"; if she is a star, she didn't have her film's undivided attention.) The brothers have always »

Cannes Review: 'Two Days, One Night,' Starring Marion Cotillard, Shows the Dardenne Brothers' Best Qualities

20 May 2014 4:18 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Belgian sibling directors Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne are best known for taut, bittersweet tales of struggling working-class characters, captured in a naturalistic style that creates an immediate sense of involvement in their lives. To that end, their latest effort "Two Days, One Night" boils down their appeal to its primal essence: Set over the course of a weekend in which a depressed young mother struggles to save her job, its deceptively simple premise belies a satisfying demonstration of their distinctive talents. Read More: Why Marion Cotillard Could Finally Win a Cannes Award While the brothers have long focused on working with amateur performers, often children, "Two Days, One Night" marks their second feature after 2011's "The Kid With a Bike" (which co-starred Cecile De France) to include major name talent. In this case, Marion Cotillard appears in every scene as the frantic Sandra, who learns in the opening minutes that she's been laid off from. »

Cannes Film Review: ‘Two Days, One Night’

20 May 2014 2:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As much as she stood out from the crowd in her Oscar-winning turn as Edith Piaf, that’s how much Marion Cotillard blends into the unfettered working-class environs of “Two Days, One Night,” a typically superb social drama from directors Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne. Rich in the Dardennes’ favored themes of work, family and the value of money, and infused with the suspense of a ticking-clock thriller, “Two Days” may be dismissed by some as more of the same from the Belgian siblings who rarely stray far from the industrial port town of Seraing. Yet within their circumscribed world, the Dardennes once again find a richness of human experience that dwarfs most movies made on an epic canvas. Cotillard’s presence will assure the widest exposure to date of any Dardenne effort, particularly in the U.S., where IFC will distribute later this year.

Always masters of narrative economy, the »

Watch: First Clip From Dardennes' Cannes Drama 'Two Days, One Night' Starring Marion Cotillard

"That was one of my best experiences," Marion Cotillard tells the La Times plainly about working with Luc and Pierre Dardenne on their upcoming "Two Days, One Night." "They offered me everything I had always wanted in a relationship between an actress and a director — well, two directors in that case. They work a lot, and I love to work a lot. Their level of demand is the highest I've ever encountered in my career, and that's what I'm looking for. They pushed me as far as I could go and maybe beyond. I would have done anything they asked me." And that work will shortly be on evidence at the Cannes Film Festival where the movie will once again find the filmmakers in Competition. This time around, the duo tell a story that centers on a young woman who has only one weekend to convince her colleagues they must »
