Consensus: Another profoundly affecting work from the Dardenne brothers, Two Days, One Night delivers its timely message with honesty and clear-eyed compassion.

There is strength in simplicity, something the Dardenne brothers' "Two Days, One Night" and its brilliant star, Marion Cotillard, prove emphatically.

As with their previous films, the brothers cast a discerning gaze on working-class lives, without preachiness or sentimentality.

Sparse, honest and sympathetic look on ordinary people in difficult situations. Simple and yet quite touching.
