3 Days in Quiberon

(3 Tage in Quiberon)

Emily Atef's portrait of Romy Schneider (Marie Bäumer, In the Face of Crime), the biggest female star in Europe of her time, recreates the seminal, final interview she gave in 1981.... More

"Schneider struggles to overcome typecasting and tabloid attention. To escape the pressures of her life, she retreats to a spa in the small village of Quibéron. A German magazine journalist and photographer are there to capture the actress’s inner workings. Over three days and nights, a game of manipulation and tenderness plays out, as Schneider desperately tries to find the strength to move forward with her life." (Sydney Film Festival)Hide

The Press Reviews

  • A single knockout performance does not make a compelling film, and Atef's intimate psychodrama ultimately lacks the imaginative verve and narrative meat to fill its overlong running time. Full Review

  • Gwisdek is a tricky delight as the unscrupulous journalist who instinctively seeks out Romy's weakest points. But she disarms him too. Full Review

  • In the end, Romy comes across not as her conservative Sissi fans might have liked, but as she probably wanted: real, flawed, open-hearted, and very human. Full Review
