An after-midnight flirtation on the streets of Berlin gets thrillingly side-tracked by another chase entirely. Filmed in a single real-time take, its an edit-free pièce de résistance of acting, directing and mobile camerawork. A hot romantic thriller filmed in a single mobile shot, Sebastian Schippers Victoria aces a dazzling experiment in narrative filmmaking. Catalan star Laia Costa plays the eponymous heroine, a young Spanish exile looking for excitement in Berlin. Amused by a band of dodgy buddies she sees being turned away from the club shes leaving, shes persuaded to tag along by the flirtatious Sonne (Frederick Lau), a handsome lunk with a soulful gaze. Intimacy beckons, but Sonnes posse are determined to haul the action out of the Before Sunrise zone and into something more like Pulp Fiction. Encompassing over two hours of seamless real time, Victorias single shot presses hard on its increasingly outlaw protagonists, while taking in a tantalising array of Berlin funk.
