Anna, Robert and their teenage son Max spend an idyllic sojourn at their remote country house. However, the entire extended family unexpectedly shows up on their doorstep. To all of them, the mansion is a special place, but the idyll doesn’t last long as past resentments and secrets are revealed.

MUBI's take

Was something in the air in the mid-2000s? Released the same year as Joanna Hogg’s Unrelated and Angela Schanelec’s Afternoon, Vacation similarly observes a middle-class family on holiday, and the tensions that cause ripples in the otherwise calm waters of the film’s bucolic and serene setting.
