Synopsis

On their way home from Afghanistan, a band of French soldiers stop in Cyprus for decompression: three days at a sun-splashed resort, where they will undergo intense psychological debriefing. There, amidst the crystal-blue waters and hordes of vacationing tourists, Marine (Soko) and Aurore (Ariane Labed) two of only three women in their male-dominated unit confront rage, trauma, and army sexism as they struggle to readjust to "normal" life.

This riveting drama winner of the Best Screenplay award in the Un Certain Regard competition at Cannes is an all-too-rare exploration of war's psychological wounds on female soldiers.

Starring Ariane Labed (The Lobster, Before Midnight, Assassin's Creed, Black Mirror)

Reviews

"A cracking good film! Gutsy, tense and disturbing...dramatic twists and reversals. Packed with piercing performances." - The Holywood Reporter

"Sensually rendered but tough-as-twine. As cuttingly observed as it is pristinely composed. Few, if any, previous films have explored the psyche of military women in the Middle East conflict with quite such shading and sensitivity." - Variety

"Powerful and compelling.A scintillating investigation into memory, guilt, and what it means to be a woman in an aggressively masculine environment." - One Room with a View
