A Danish, Dutch and Swedish coproduction, Holiday has been making the festival rounds, impressing critics and audiences alike with its beauty and brutality. Part horror-thriller, part quiet character study, Isabella Eklöf’s directorial debut follows party girl Sascha as she slowly comes to understand the true cost of the oppulent lifestyle comes along with her drug-lord boyfriend. Don’t be fooled by the pristine beaches, sprawling villas, and gorgeous girls — things are rotten just below the surface.
Holiday is playing undubbed at 3001 Kino in Sternschanze. While parts of the film are in English, much of the dialogue is Danish with German subtitles.
Where: 3001 KINO, Schanzenstraße 75, 20357 Hamburg
