One additional pick for Abu Dhabi Film Festival 2014 - Two Days, One Night
My last post featured my top 25 picks for the upcoming Abu Dhabi Film Festival. After I shared my selection, I realised I missed out on one more film that is a must see. I somehow missed it when I went through the film list. So here it is, one more to add to the list.
Two Days, One Night
Why? Its received rave reviews since its premiere in Cannes earlier this year, where it got a 15 minute standing ovation. Marillion Coltillard's performance has been highly praised. Her character is looking for sympathy, for solidarity, a film that looks at choices humans make, doing the right thing versus doing what is necessary.
Dates: 23rd October - 1st November 2014
