Trailer for A Few Days of Respite.

After escaping Iran, where their relationship would mean a death sentence, middle-aged lovers Hassan and Mohsen find themselves at a small-town station in France waiting for a train to Paris. Sitting apart to avoid unwanted police attention, Mohsen, a linguist who speaks perfect French, soon strikes up a lively conversation with Yolande, an older well-groomed widow, traveling alone. Finding his companionship stimulating, Yolande decides, on the spur of the moment, to offer Mohsen the opportunity of some day-labor work in her apartment. In need of the extra income, Hassan and Mohsen break short their journey and hole up in a cheap hotel, around the corner from Yolande.
