Victoria

Victoria

Directed by Sebastian Schipper

Victoria, a young Spanish woman, dances through the Berlin scene. She meets four mates outside a club who introduce themselves as Sonne, Boxer, Blinker and Fuß. They quickly get chatting. Sonne and Victoria take a fancy to each other and slip away from the group at the first opportunity. But their tender flirting is rudely interrupted by the others because, for these pals, the night is far from over. To settle an old debt they have to pull off a dodgy deal. And because one of them is too drunk, they decide that Victoria, of all people, should take over the role of driver. What began as a game suddenly becomes deadly serious.

Spectacularly shot in one take, Victoria follows a runaway party girl asked by three friendly men to join them as they hit the town. Their wild night of partying turns into a bank robbery.

Cast: Burak Yigit, Franz Rogowski, Frederick Lau, Laia Costa

A story that keeps living on even in spite of so much darkness and light. A crazy satanic Mephisto piano piece played in the closed night time cafe is much like a catalyst of the dance at it's core value; beauty and foreboding, and some bad choices, although with brilliant strategies. Like the piano piece played by Victoria's hands except with no ending. Living on the edge of what is to come.

Sebastian Schipper’s sensational single-take thriller is an ode to the art of filmmaking.
