A weekend of retail therapy turns into a ‘holiday from hell’ …
From rising Russian star Mikhail Brashinsky comes a ‘biting’ horror satire targeting consumerism, xenophobia and immigration panic in northern Europe, in a tense, bloody battle for survival.
Brashinsky pokes fun at retail hungry Russians and their idealized Finnish neighbours, playfully imagining that Finland – ranked ‘best country in the world’ by Newsweek Magazine – might not be so picture perfect after all.
Winner of Critics’ Prize, Best Female Performance and Grand-Prix at the Russian National Film Festival ‘Window to Europe’ and the Special Jury Prize at the Polar Lights International Film Festival in St. Petersburg. A popular film on the international film festival circuit, screening at Sitges International Festival of Fantastic Cinema, Gothenburg International Film Festival and Torino International Film Festival.
