A NETFLIX ORIGINAL FILM





"Dazzling and disquieting in equal measure, Sebastian Hofmann's sleek puzzler turns a family vacation into a slow-building nightmare."
-Variety


"Bunuelian in its brash satire of corporate ambition, Time Share can be as blackly comic as a Coen brothers screenplay."
-Screen International

"Visually stunning (...) Time Share proves a cinematically arresting psychological thriller that succeeds in keeping viewers on edge."
-The Hollywood Reporter 


"Oppressive in its atmosphere and just plain gorgeous to take in, it's a film that turns paradise into a nightmare, refusing to let you go."
-Film Pulse
