Holiday (2018)

Isabella Eklöf directs Victoria Carmen Sonne, Lai Yde and Thijs Römer in this Danish crime drama where a potential love triangle forms between a trophy girlfriend, a cruel gangster and a traveller.

The film itself is a languid mixture of Sexy Beast and Knife in the Water punctuated by a gruelling sequence of sexual violence. It is not particularly deep nor pleasant viewing; pop nihilism. There is however a scene that after a lower rung henchman fucks up he has to buy everyone at the holiday villa penance gifts. I want to introduce this at work… shit at your job, then buy me a new shirt or the latest Ian Rankin.
