Storyline

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?

The film has been crawling under my skin for days
27 July 2018 | by DJKwaSee all my reviews

//Revelation Film Festival Review//

If the six people that walked out during the screening are any indication, Holiday is going to provoke some polarising opinions. It's a tough watch, a film designed to get under your skin and features one of the most graphic rape sequences ever committed to screen. However, what's most shocking about the film is the realism in which everything is portrayed.

The story, in short, is about the terrible things men do to women and that women allow men to do to them. While the plot meanders and never provides any definitive answers, the frustration it elicits is part of the film's effect. It's not for the faint hearted and in the "me too" era, Holiday is definitely going to provoke some fierce conversation. I didn't like the film but it got the exact reaction that it wanted out of me and it's been crawling under my skin for days.

Summary: A tough watch designed to provoke audiences; Holiday has been crawling under my skin for days.
