About the Film
Exhilarating and astonishingly ambitious, Victoria is an adrenaline-fuelled heist thriller set on the streets of night-time Berlin that features the staggering technical feat of being shot in a single, unbroken take. Victoria, a young woman from Madrid, meets four local guys outside a nightclub in the early hours of the morning. Sonne and his friends are Berliners who promise to show her the real side of the city. Striking up a friendship, they take to a nearby rooftop to continue the night. But when the group are suddenly forced to repay a debt to a member of the city’s criminal underworld, the night quickly spirals out of control. Winner of the Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Achievement at Berlinale 2015, Victoria is a breathless, visceral thrill-ride of a film. Aided by a booming techno soundtrack by German composer Nils Frahm, it is a must-see for fans of edge-of-your-seat thrillers and boundary-pushing cinema.
Do not read any spoilers.
Brilliant simple, effective concept. Wonderful acting and cinematography.
Stellar music from Nils Frahm as well.
Just wonderful. And fun.
Had to give up
Not to my taste. I found it pedestrian and unwatchable. Ended up skipping forward in the hope of things picking up. For me, it would have been improved by editing.
Stunning milestone in film
Utterly stunning. Shot in one long take. Watch the plot unfold in real time, slowly, often without incident. That's real life. Then the plot thickens and the incidents intervene, affecting every character's life. Even then the pace is real time. Where's the ambulance? It was only called two minutes ago! Get used to the realistic pace and this film could change your life ....
