At the end of their tour of duty in Afghanistan, two young military women, Aurore and Marine, are given three days of decompression leave with their unit at a five-star resort in Cyprus, among tourists. But it's not that easy to forget the war and leave the violence behind.Written by
Two young women are part of a French army unit returning from Afghanistan. The unit stops over in Cyprus for debriefing and relaxation.
A disturbing attack happened as their convoy was traveling through the mountains and as becomes clear, each soldier has a different view on that event. Some are greatly affected by the memories whereas others appear to be in denial. The movie builds up considerable tension as the viewer starts to realize that most of these individuals aren't fit to return to society. The actual battle is only shown through a crude VR software used in the debriefings, but the action and horror of the combat is omnipresent in the faces, actions and immature decisions of the soldiers. They seem to be stuck between childhood and innocence, and overwhelming experience.
Great acting, sound camera work and a backdrop (a beautiful island and holiday resort) that together emphasize the homelessness and disorientation of the characters.
