3 Days In Quiberon Review

  • HeyUGuys
Famed for her turbulent lifestyle and intense on-and-off relationship with legendary French actor Alain Delon, Austrian actress Romy Schneider became a sensation at home when she was still in her teens by starring in a series of films about Empress Elisabeth of Austria in the hugely successful Austrian Sissi trilogy. She later moved to France where she made some of the most successful films of her career with some of the most acclaimed directors of the 60s and 70s including Luchino Visconti, René Clément and many more.

A year before her untimely death at the age of 43 and whilst at a detox clinic in the seaside town of Quiberon, Brittany, Schneider posed for exclusive photos and gave a deeply alarming and honest interview to a German journalist about her state of mind. In her new film 3 Days In Quiberon, director Emily Atef (The Stranger in Me) offers a beautifully

Three Days in Quiberon review – when Romy Schneider went to rehab

Marie Bäumer eerily impersonates the Austrian-born film star in an intense drama charting an episode in her real-life decline

Emily Atef’s film is a kind of filmic biopic-footnote, an episode from the real-life decline of troubled Austrian-born movie star Romy Schneider, famed for her collaborations with Tavernier, Welles and Chabrol and her tempestuous personal life. It is a curious movie: ruminative, lugubrious and theatrical – intense at some moments; at others low-key and almost inconsequential. The black-and-white cinematography gives it the look of a 70s picture by Wim Wenders.

In 1981, Schneider retreated to a rehab resort in Quiberon in Brittany, where she conducted her final, recklessly indiscreet interview with Stern magazine’s star writer Michael Jürgs, who was accompanied by photographer Robert Lebeck – chiefly because she already knew and trusted Lebeck. The results laid bare her emotional agony and money worries, and this has here been translated into fictional form by Atef,

‘3 Days In Quiberon’ Review: Dir. Emily Atef (2018)

3 Days In Quiberon review: Emily Atef’s portrait of the French-German film star Romy Schneider during three days at a five-star health resort in western France.

3 Days In Quiberon review by Paul Heath.

3 Days In Quiberon review

Romy Schneider was once Europe’s most famous movie star. In a career that started when she was just 15 years old, all the way through to her premature death in 1981, the actress appeared in over sixty motion pictures, winning an array of awards along the way. Emily Atef’s new film examines the three days the actress spent in a five-star health resort in the French community of Quiberon on the west coast of the country.

The year is 1981 and we follow a middle-aged woman named Hilde Fritsch (Birgit Minichmayr) into the beach-fronted resort, an exclusive Diététique hotel where everything – dairy, meat, gluten and especially alcohol, is off the menu. Holed up in

Twelve Films that Sucked This Year in Berlin — Some Badly, Some Less Badly

Twelve Films that Sucked This Year in Berlin — Some Badly, Some Less Badly
by Alex C. DeleonIntroducing here a new (to me, but not to his fans!) reviewer whose voice is clear and decidedly different! Get ready for some new films and new outlooks!“Off the Wall Minireviews from Berlin”

I saw 21 films at Berlin this week at least 18 of which were Ordeals to sit through or so tedious they led to walkouts — It was almost enough to make me give up on film viewing altogether —

An unusually large number of films dwelt on the gathering infirmity of people [of a certain age ]and the uselessness of carrying on — I call them “Why Bother” movies — Ah for the good old days when movies told stories instead of kvetching about the misery of the Human Condition and the impossibility of having any kind of good relationship …other than extremely kinky or totally insane.

The misery of the Human Condition is the Hallmark at Berlin 2018, and here is —

Memo to Distributors: Buy These 9 Movies from the 2018 Berlin International Film Festival

Memo to Distributors: Buy These 9 Movies from the 2018 Berlin International Film Festival
For all of its well-documented troubles, the Berlin International Film Festival is still a veritable smorgasbord for adventurous distributors who might be willing to take a chance on some exciting arthouse cinema. Most of the approximately 400 movies that play at the massive annual showcase will never see the light of day in the United States, either in theaters or even on streaming platforms, but the ones that are scooped up for domestic release tend to make an outsized impact once they land on these shores. Two of the current nominees for Best Foreign Language Film premiered at last year’s Berlinale (“On Body and Soul” and “A Fantastic Woman”), while other standouts from the 2017 edition like “Félicité” and “The Other Side of Hope” eventually became highlights of the fall movie season.

As always, the 2018 festival was completely overwhelming, and offered a handful of buried treasure that American audiences deserve to see.
