1981: One year before her death, famous actress Romy Schneider retreats to a spa hotel in the town of Quiberon, Brittany. Visited by her close friend Hilde, who has come to offer the support she needs to fight her own demons. But it is more than just the reunion of two old friends. When two journalists from the STERN arrive to conduct an interview, Hilde tries to shield her friend from their invasive interrogation tactics. For three days and nights, the interaction between the quartet ranges from sensitivity to brutal manipulation, an emotional roller coaster ride, by the end of which Romy seems more vulnerable than ever. Yet perhaps she has rediscovered her zest for life and the inner strength to carry on. Written by Beta Film GmbH

Consider Marie Bäumer for an Oscar nomination next year!
21 February 2018 | by Alexander_BlanchettSee all my reviews

A biopic of Romy Schneider during her last weeks of her life. The film portrays the very emotional and radical last interview she has given while she was on holidays and cure in Quiberon. She gets confronted with her past and life in general which turns into another crisis of the troubled legendary european actress. Marie Bäumer is absolutely phenomenal in the leading role. And if that had been an american film, she surely would be a strong contender for the Oscar. Bäumer not only perfectly captures the mannerisms of Schneider, no she allows us a very deep look into her soul and there is not one scene where she is now shining! Absolutely breathtaking performance. The rest of the cast is also great. Charly Hübner is extremely sympathetic and lovable. Birgit Minichmayr is as great as always and turns into a warm and brilliant supporting performance as Romy's best friend Hilde. The choice to direct the film in black and white was absolutely perfect because on that way the close ups worked even better and more effective. Great score, great direction and a fantastic screenplay makes this an absolutely worthy biopic of Romy Schneider. Highly recommended not only for fans of the actress but to everyone because it perfectly describes a woman on the edgiest edge of breakdown.
