Beyrouth 2013. Riad, l'oncle de la réalisatrice, et ses amis, anciens combattants des milices chrétiennes au Liban, vivent toujours à l’heure des combats qui ont enflammé leur jeunesse. Entre souvenirs échangés dans la boutique de chasse de Riad et parties de chasse dont ils reviennent souvent bredouilles, Myriam El Hajj les questionne, les affronte : que leur reste-t-il de leurs combats, de leur engagement, de leur idéal, alors que le Liban continue à vivre dans les tourments de l’instabilité ?
Festival international du film Entrevues Belfort
What first seem like nice old men getting on with their daily lives and friendships, calmly absorbed in their hobbies, gradually turn out to be retired killers with terrifying intentions. One of the most alarming parts of this spine-chilling film is watching the young filmmaker face-to-face with these men (including her uncle) in an irreconcilable stand-off. "A Time To Rest" was in competition at the Entrevue Belfort International Film Festival in 2015, and before that shown at the Visions du Réel festival in Switzerland.
