For generations of film fans, Romy Schneider represents a Romantic dream come true – Sissi, the noble Empress of Austria. Yet now the once-celebrated actress arrives at the rehab clinic at Quiberon, a seaside town in western France, as a broken woman, an artist at the end of her career, a mother who in vain strives to establish a relationship with her own child, an unsteady person inclined to alcoholism and depression. Amidst the melancholic atmosphere of Quiberon, she undergoes curative procedures with a view to attaining “resurrection”. While staying at the spa hotel, Romy gives her last interview to Michael Jürgs, a journalist from the Stern magazine, and poses for photographs, taken by Robert Lebeck, her old flame. Emily Atef’s film presents a highly impressive and moving portrait of the much-beloved star.
