Goethe-Institut Boston invites you for a screening of 3 Days in Quiberon (2018) by German director Emily Atef. The movie is set in 1981 in Quiberon, a small village on the coast of Brittany. Hilde arrives to visit her old friend – world-famous star Romy Schneider – who has retreated to escape the daily pressures of her life. Despite her negative experiences with the German press Romy Schneider agrees to an interview with a reporter of the German magazine Stern. A cat-and-mouse game immediately ensues between the fragile diva and the ambitious journalist. The two embark on an emotional roller coaster ride that fluctuates between tenderness and mutual manipulation while Hilde tries to protect her friend from the journalists’ attempts to capture for their audience the innermost feelings of this fascinating woman.
