Zach Clark’s Vacation!

Thelma & Louise times two i.e. four female friends setting on a holiday. Here the comparison stops.

Clark plays with form, introduces local elements to spice up the story. What is planned to be an innocent week at the seaside of four college mates, through days spent at the beach, drunken evenings and boring neighbourhood, suddenly changes its course by 180 degrees after an episode of one night party with LSD. Nothing is the same the next morning.

It’s a beach party film, the opening credits bring to mind the 1980’s Miami Vice TV series. Pink, glossy, light. The girls are pretty, the blonde wigs enable to blend them all into one messy character.

Don’t expect the expected. It’s an interesting project, especially the LSD trip, which, for those who have experienced it, looks very realistic.
