Senator Film Distribution / Netflix
Director Sebastian Schipper needed three months of intensive rehearsals and three complete runs , but in the end he actually managed the logistical masterpiece: his thriller drama » Victoria » from 2015 consists of a single 130-minute plan sequence without a cut! And that’s anything but a mere gimmick.
With his impressive staging approach, Schipper succeeds in throwing his audience right into the middle of a Berlin night in real time, developing irrepressible energy and an irresistible pull. The rousing interplay of form and content turns the exceptional work, located somewhere between airy romance, dynamic thriller and feverish city portrait, into a film-like intoxication, for which we awarded a well-deserved 4.5 out of 5 stars.
