Movie Info

Young and beautiful Sascha discovers her dream life of luxury, recklessness and fun comes at a price when she is welcomed into the "family" of her drug lord boyfriend at his holiday villa in the port city of Bodrum on the Turkish Riveria. Physical and psychological violence are a way of life for this gangster family, but when the velvet veneer is stripped raw to the bone, Sascha's eye drifts towards the "normal" life she is leaving behind--is it possible she could still be accepted by polite society?

Critic Reviews for Holiday

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

[Eklöf] has the provocateur's gift for images that needle, nettle and stick, well before their message locks firmly into place.

Top Critic

For a directorial vision that wants to challenge what we do and don't see, Eklof also adds complications to trauma that make Holiday a searing character study.

Sascha is a complex character whose actions don't adhere to traditional story beats.

Top Critic

It's directly due to the dramatic somnolence of the first half that what comes after hits with such blunt force.

January 26, 2018 | Full Review…

This is a dream world open only to the rich -- even Thomas owns a yacht -- and to most of those who glimpse it, it will remain distant. To stay there - to become one of its creatures - one has to break all the usual rules.

October 22, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

An unnervingly bleak and formally rigid exploration of a young Danish woman ensnared in a transactional relationship with a wealthier older man with less-than-subtle ties to organized crime.
