A shot from the film "3 Days in Quiberon"
For three days in 1981, Romy Schneider was, according to Stern, "not in her best form". During her stay in a luxury hotel in Brittany, supported by a close friend, she gives her last interview in the life for "Stern". A frank conversation with an ambitious journalist reveals the unexpected side of Romy Schneider. This dazzling woman, whom many already considered broken, was full of passion and hope.
"- You are known for scandals.
- I am not who I play in my films. I am an unhappy 42-year-old woman and my name is Romy Schneider", Romy Schneider said in the interview.
The premiere of the film by Emily Atef took place in the competition program of the Berlin International Film Festival. In addition, the picture was awarded Germany's highest national award in the field of cinematography - the German Film Academy awards in six categories: Best Film, Best Director, Best Supporting Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Music.
Speaking about the work on the biography of an actress with a world-wide name, director Emily Atef sees in the heroine not only a person who overcomes a serious life crisis, but also "a woman who wants to open herself entirely to others for the first time in her life".
The depth and relevance of human experiences revealed in the film and the game of Marie Baumer – the main character – were highly appreciated by critics around the world: "3 Days in Quiberon" is a frequently engrossing time capsule that doesn't require any sort of Schneider fandom to enjoy" (Indiewire). "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" (Variety). "Bäumer is superb and an uncanny resemblance to Schneider in the lead, giving an honest and utterly believable turn as the actress" (The Hollywood New).
