From the Belgian Dardenne brothers ("Rosetta," "The Kid with the Bike") this film is somewhat unusual in that they use an actual movie star (Marion Cotillard). They usually work with non-professionals and favor a very stripped down, un-Hollywood style (no music, no make-up, no FX), which recalls Bresson. Cotillard easily slips into the role of a struggling woman who has a weekend to persuade co-workers to help her keep her job. Despite the simplicity of the set-up, it actually is quite tense and involving and Cotillard, whose career has balanced blockbusters with smaller films, is compelling and sympathetic in the lead role. She already won an Oscar for playing Edith Piaf, but this a better performance. It's also a quiet critique of the human cost of capitalism and the market driven economy. An excellent little film that will serve as a palate cleanser after the big summer movie season.
