Victoria (15)

German / English subtitles

Germany, 2015, 140 mins, dir. Sebastian Schipper

One city. One night. One take.

This exhilarating heist thriller by German actor and director Sebastian Schipper’s was shot entirely in one fluid, continuous take.

Offering a unique and immersive viewing experience Victoria is one of the best technical achievements to hit cinemas this year, screened to acclaim at festivals including Toronto and the Berlinale where it unsurprisingly won a Silver Bear for Cinematography.

The film pulls the audience into a vivid, neon-lit late-night Berlin, where a young Spanish woman, Victoria (Laia Costa) and four Berliner best friends bond outside a club. As roof top beers are sipped and a late night romance buds things take a darker turn and bad decisions are made as the group are forced to take part in a serious crime.

Shot in real time it is not just cinematography that is innovative here, Victoria demands momentum and stamina from is cast. As events unfold it’s hard to know just how much of the exhaustion, euphoria, sweat and tears are performance, and how much is actually for real.

Victoria is an exhausting, but thrilling, sensation and and tense experience.
