“A slow-burn nightmare of Euro–middle-class mores curdling around the edges.

Even Michael Haneke might find the final 20 minutes a little too unnerving.”

– David Fear, Rolling Stone

“A masterly work of social horror that sits with you long afterward. Offers a piercing commentary on the ways we accommodate others to the point of self-subjugation.”

– Susannah Gruder, IndieWire

“A pitiless social satire. Lulls audiences into a false sense of security before snapping shut with the brute efficiency of a steel-jaw trap.”

– Isaac Feldberg, Roger Ebert. com


On a vacation in Tuscany, two families – one Danish, one Dutch – meet and become fast friends. Months later, the free-spirited Dutch family extends an invitation to the more conservative Danish one for a holiday weekend getaway at their countryside home. However, it doesn’t take long before things gradually get out of hand as the joy of reunion is replaced with misunderstandings. The Dutch hospitality quickly turns unnerving for the Danes, and they find themselves increasingly caught in a web of their own politeness in the face of eccentric…or is it sinister…behavior.
