Shot in one single, continuous take, Sebastian Schipper’s exhilarating Victoria is a technical marvel, pulling us into a vivid, late-night Berlin, where a young Spanish woman, Victoria (Laia Costa) and her four Berliner best friends meet outside a club. As events unfold in real time they party, get high and start a romance – but things take a darker turn when they find themselves forced to take part in a crime. Schipper doesn’t cut once, and it seems to the viewer that the actors’ exhaustion, euphoria, sweat and tears are half-performance, half-real. An incredible thriller, audaciously constructed.
