People who cannot hear well need help to join the audience.

Two Days, One Night

it's in french get over it

(Edit) 23/11/2015

As many people have pointed out this film is not high paced or demanding. It's about a worker who has been off sick and who has already been fired. She must find the strength to ask her colleagues to agree to her return, and to lose their bonus in the process.

I found it engaging, and Cotillard's acting is superb - her weakness and vacillations at the journey she must take, make her a very irritating heroine. The interest develops as she confronts her colleagues in turn, and their reactions to her request, which range from immediate acceptance and great sympathy to outrage and physical violence. The resolution of the story is unexpected and redemptive. This is a gentle film, and seemingly one for those not expecting fireworks.

By the way - subtitles are essential if you are hard of hearing like my husband, even when films are in english
