3 TAGE IN QUIBERON
Germany, France, Austria
The atmosphere, the time (the 80s) and most of all the fragility of this world-famous actress Romy Schneider, that Lebeck caught in his pictures moved me so much that I was totally drawn into the research of Romy’s character, her biography during those days and the juxtaposition of the star in public and the private person that Romy Schneider used to be.
What interested me was the zoom into three days, the focus on one location, just four characters with various intentions in connection with the real and last German interview that Romy Schneider ever gave. Furthermore, what really grabbed/ interested me was to be under the skin of this extraordinary woman and artist who pretty much hit rock bottom but at the end of these three days manages to see a shimmer of hope and possibility.
I felt this story had to be told because of Romy’s inner conflicts are so immensely universal that they would touch a wider audience.
