    It earned rave reviews at Cannes, especially for Cotillard’s performance, although surprisingly the directing brothers or Cotillard didn’t win anything. 
     
    I love their films btw, I was fortunate enough to get a hold of The Kid with a Bike and The Child, both wonderful films. 

    There’s at least one spot still open in this year’s Best Actress race, and would you all think Cotillar can come close again a la Rust and Bones?

    Does the film have a qualifying release date? That been my main question with alot of this year’s Best Actress contenders. As for the film itself I don’t see it making a splash with voters but I’ll watch it when it’s on Netflix most likely.

    Unbelievable that there wasn’t a thread about this.

    I think there’s already a USA release date in December? Am I right?

    Hmm looks like there hasn’t been a release date for the US, but it’s being distributed by IFC’s Sundance Selects. 

    Hmm…If IFC really wants to get into the awards this year, they still have a Best Actress spot to campaign, but Cotillard is a long shot I’m afraid.

    Yeah, Cotillard isn’t going to awards ceremonies with this role.

    Looks amazing, but not gonna happen. Being with IFC (whose money/focus will be almost entirely on Boyhood) is bad enough, but the fact that it’s in a foreign language is the nail in the coffin. IFC/Sundance Selects tried their best to campaign for Adele Exarchopoulos last year, but it wasn’t enough to get on the Academy’s more mainstream radar. Even though Cotillard is a previous winner/star, she’ll have the same problem this year.  The film just won’t be seen by enough people.

    They’re up against it in multiple ways. At this point, I’m not holding my breathe. If getting one’s legs bitten off by a giant dolphin didnt quite work, this one probably has even less chance.

    I suppose one can hope though.

    lol Was it really a giant dolphin? I thought it was the lochness monster. I don’t know, I haven’t seen it. 

    She came really close in 2012 though. Then Amour came surging in at the last minute and I guess they only had room for one French actress.

    Fortunately this is the even year so Dardennes can be picked for Best Foreign Language Film on behalf of their country. Belgium has a very specific system where Flemish (Dutch-language) and Walloon (French-language) parts of the country switch every year when it comes to select an Oscar entry (similar thing happens with many international events, for example when it comes to pick Belgian entry for Eurovision Song Contest). 3 years ago “The Kid with a Bike” got stunning reviews but couldn’t be submitted because it was Flemish time to submit. “Bullhead” was selected instead and actually got nominated, along with next Dutch submission, “The Broken Circle Breakdown” last year. This time Dardennes can be submitted and they probably will. Film looks intriguing and Cotillard can certainly only help its Best Foreign Language Film chances, a’la Javier Bardem for “Biutiful”, even if she won’t be nominated for Best Actress.

    I have seen every Dardenne Brothers film since The Promise in 1996 and like all of them to varying degrees. I do think there very best films are Rosetta (which put them on the map) and The Child.

    I saw Two Days, One Night a couple of weeks after it’s Cannes premiree and it is the first film by the brothers that I really didn’t care for.

    I had a problem with the premise for starters and found the film repetative and overloaded. I have never much cared for Marion Cotillard and was familiar with her prior to her international oscar winning break through role.

    She is though, the best thing about this film. Dispite my disappointment in the film it has a fanastic and powerful pay-off.

    Oscar wise it will no doubt be Beligum’s entry and given the reception to the film does stand some degree of making the short list and maybe even the final five. A win is not out of the question. However, the Dardenne brothers make films that are not really the type of films that the Academy embraces, even in the foreign language film category.

    I can’t recall a single nominee that is remotely like a Dardenne Brothers film. Of course there is a first time for everything and it want be great to see them win (more so for there body of work than this particular film).

    If Marion is getting a nomination, it’s going to be for The Immigrant. 
    And Two Days, One Night is almost a lock for Best Foreign Language Film.

    NOTHING is ever almost a lock for Best Foreign Language Film. Ever. 

    Also bear in mind that the Dardennes have never had a film nominated, despite several submissions from Belgium.
