Deux jours à tuer Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A middle-aged man decides it's time to stop hiding his feelings, with explosive results, in this dark drama from French filmmaker Jean Becker. Antoine (Albert Dupontel) is a successful advertising executive who owns his own firm and has a wife, two children and a mistress. On his forty-second birthday, a switch seemingly goes off within Antoine and after a lifetime of being civil he begins telling others just what he thinks, usually in a blunt and hurtful manner. Antoine insults one of his best clients and bad-mouths their products before quitting his job and releasing a volley of insults upon his partners. That evening, his wife Cecile (Marie-Josee Croze) throws him a birthday party, but if anything Antoine's mood grows darker; he tells his wife he's never really cared for her, scolds his children for their behavior and poor spelling, and chastises all his friends in attendance. Angry Antoine packs a bag and leaves for a long voyage, which leads him to Ireland and a volatile meeting with his emotionally-distant father (Pierre Vaneck). Deux Jours a Tuer (aka Love Me No More) also features Alessandra Martines, Mathias Mlekus and Cristiana Reali. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
