Synopsis

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? "Holiday" refuses to cast judgment on its protagonist with its stark cinematography and long takes, letting lead Victoria Carmen Sonne's subtle performance shine in this crime drama about imbalances of power. Kimber Myers [Eklöf] has the provocateur's gift for images that needle, nettle and stick, well before their message locks firmly into place. Guy Lodge
