☆Official Selection – Orizonti Competition – Venice Film Festival, 2012.

Based on Master and Man by Leo Tolstoy, Boxing Day follows Ivans XTC and The Kreutzer Sonata as the third film in a loose trilogy of modern day interpretations of Tolstoy stories.

Basil, a struggling, indebted business man, leaves his family immediately after Christmas to pursue a lucrative property deal that could solve all of his problems: buying foreclosed properties from banks at a fraction of their market value, refurbishing them for a minimum cost, and then selling them for a quick and substantial profit. He hires a local chauffeur to drive him around the mountainous area but, as night sets in, the car is trapped on an icy road and the men face an uncertain fate.
