Adapted by the two sisters from the novel of the same name by Delphine Coulin, the story revolves around two female soldiers who, just like all troops on their way back from Afghanistan, go through a decompression chamber, spending three days in a five-star hotel in Cyprus...

Produced by Denis Freyd for Archipel 35 (who produced the Coulin sisters’ feature debut), The Stopover is co-produced by Arte France Cinéma and Greek outfit Blonde. Having been pre-purchased by Canal+ and ciné+, the film is also backed by the CNC’s advance on receipts and by the Franco-Greek co-production support fund. The eight-week shoot will take place primarily on Rhodes, with just a few scenes in France, and the DoP’s shoes are filled by Jean-Louis Vialard (Tropical Malady, Silent Voices [+see also:
