This is civilized human behavior captured with a clinical precision and accuracy.
Mostly, though, Hogg displays a welcome desire to draw on global film influences and ignore the unwritten rules of what British cinema should or should not seek to achieve, especially in the realm of films about the monied and unsympathetic.
Hogg works primarily with hypnotic, locked-down, wide-open compositions that seem, at times, to swallow up the people that inhabit them.
This is a drama that amounts to much more than the sum of its parts and, without doubt, is one of the best, and most original, British films of the year.
If Hogg can render the travails of a bunch of middle-class British holidaymakers a subject of interest, there's reason to hope she has some career in the making.

As if from nowhere, a first-time British film-maker has appeared with a tremendously accomplished, subtle and supremely confident feature, authorially distinctive and positively dripping with technique.
An obviously low budget (some parts are hard to hear due to improper sound staging) drama that is carried by strong performances, espcially from the supporting cast. I found myself enjoying it and drawn in, and it did stick with me afterwards and make me think. A drama well-done.
Art house style films are just not for me, because while this film was a "good film", it was boring and mundane. It's like someone just walks around these people on holiday with a camera and nothing really happens - plots are supposed to have a beginning, climax and ending and this film just has this slow crawl of random events.
