Christopher Webster [Celluloid 07.28.15] Germany thriller

Shot across 22 locations in a single, 134 minute take, Victoria tells the exhilarating tale of a Spanish night-clubber who finds herself caught up in a bank robbery in Berlin.

According to the film's distributor: “This film is not a movie; it’s not about a bank robbery. It is bank robbery. It was shot in one single take... no cuts. No CGI. No cheap tricks. No expensive ones, either. Just one shot.”

No one is claiming Victoria is the fist film to do this. Russian Ark famously came out of the gate first, and Silent House soon followed (though many believe that film's claim was less than credible).

Victoria has been wowing festival audiences for the first part of 2015 and now it looks like the film will be seeing some kind of release October 9.

Victoria, a young woman from Madrid, meets four local Berliners outside a nightclub. Sonne and his friends promise to show her a good time and the real side of the city. But these lads have gotten themselves into hot water: they owe someone a dangerous favor that requires repaying that evening.

As Victoria’s flirtation with Sonne deepens into something more, he convinces her to come along for the ride. And later, when things become more ominous and possibly lethally dangerous for Sonne, she insists on coming along. As the night takes on an ever more menacing character, what started out as a good time, quickly spirals out of control.

As dawn approaches, Victoria and Sonne address the inevitable: it’s all or nothing and they abandon themselves to a heart-stopping race into the depths of hell.

Victoria opens on October 9. Sebastian Schipper directs; Laia Costa and Frederick Lau star.

Recommended Release: Run Lola Run
