Visually “Holiday” reminds me of Seidl films, with a touch of Breillat (unless it’s just the prosthetic penis). A distant, cold camera records the vacation of a Nordic gangster and his girlfriend Sascha in Turkey. It’s visually impressive, but the story is ugly. I never understood the motives behind Sascha’s actions, but that applies for real people as well, and perhaps for that reason I found the movie so rewarding.
