Storyline

HOLIDAY FROM HELL. A young couple in the IT business, with no kids and a fancy house in a good neighbourhood, finally have a few weeks off before new career challenges. Envious about their friends' exotic holiday destinations, they meet a travel agent offering them the ultimate experience: four weeks in one of the shadiest suburbs of the city. Part of the deal is that their credit cards, passports and keys are all sealed in an envelope. Acting as an unemployed couple, their street credibility is often questioned by their new neighbours who are more at home with the ways of the concrete jungle. And this is just the beginning...

Welcome to post modern holidays
24 July 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The theme of this film resolves around the fact that nowadays you can buy packaged "adventure" holidays for any part of the world, to deep down Amazonia or even to the North Pole, that is to say if you have the money. But what happens "when you have done it all", you will want something else, something scary with a taste of the real stuff and real risk. This is where the post modern holiday enters, why not go someplace really dangerous, two weeks in a country torn by civil war for instance. This is not too far fetched in fact I saw an advert on a newspaper offering a different holiday where you rescue crocodiles. The fact that crocodiles live in unhealthy places and tend to see you as a snack didn't seem to be a problem but on top of you had to pay to participate and these "holidays" although advertised by a charity were far from cheap. So an excellent film, a surprise that Hollywood didn't make a remake out of it but that is all the better as they could very likely mess it up, a bad surprise is that this film is so little know, the copy we saw was subtitled and hard to find.
