In a spa hotel Romy Schneider, the biggest female star in Europe of her time, gives her last interview to two journalists. Three days, driven by romantic desire, professional ambition and the urge for living.

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.

THR: Emily Atef on '3 Days in Quiberon' and Its "Woman in Crisis"

The Berlin native discusses why she chose to examine the troubled life of screen legend Romy Schneider in her competition entry.





“3 Days in Quiberon” is a frequently engrossing time capsule that doesn't require any sort of Schneider fandom to enjoy.“
(INDIEWIRE)

“Real, flawed, open-hearted, and very human.“
(VARIETY)

“Marie Bäumer is terrific; she brings to the role a skittish mercurial quality which teeters on the edge of panic…a handsome, carefully crafted drama”
(SCREENDAILY)

“Bäumer is superb and an uncanny resemblance to Schneider in the lead, giving an honest and utterly believable turn as the actress”
(THE HOLLYWOOD NEWS)

Grade: A - “Carried by a fantastic performance by Marie Bäumer who perfectly captures the actresses' vulnerability, anger and fear…3 DAYS IN QUIBERON features a standout performance”
