"Valentin (Sami Frey), a middle-aged man, returns to the place of his childhood after a long absence: the "Grand Hôtel" in the Grisons mountains. Once owned by his family, it is now doomed to demolition. In the abandoned, dilapidated rooms, in the extinct corridors, memories are awakened of a mysterious, exciting life that once seemed to the boy to be the only reality. The returned man hears faded music and voices, and he encounters figures long forgotten."
SRF (Film Tip of the Day, 2016)
"Zwischensaisonis a beautiful and provocative melodrama and a tribute to certain eccentric freedoms in the early 19th century, as well as to the end of elite tourism and grand hotels of the time - and to the end of one's own childhood: a childhood viewed with great gratitude through the eyes of a grown man - who has long since left the protective place from the past."
