The Stopover

Aurore and Marine are given three days of “decompression leave” with their unit, among tourists, at a five-star resort in Cyprus. But it’s not that easy to forget the war and leave violence behind. Childhood friends who left Brittany to see the world and saw much more than they bargained for, the two respond differently to the program, and tensions surface. Inspired by real experiences, this sometimes surreal film about trauma, gender, sexism, and friendship is “cuttingly observed, fraught, and bleakly funny.”—Variety. In French and Greek with English subtitles.
