Sebastian Schipper’s ambitious, authentic one-take sensation ‘Victoria’ won the 2015 Berlin Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution for Cinematography.
Victoria, a young woman from Madrid, meets four local guys outside a nightclub. Sonne and his friends are real Berliners who promise to show her a good time and the real side of the city. But these boys have got themselves into hot water: they owe someone a dangerous favour that needs repaying that evening. As Victoria’s flirtation with Sonne begins developing into something more, he convinces her to come along for the ride. As the night rolls on, what started out as a good time, quickly spirals out of control. As dawn approaches, Victoria and Sonne realise it’s all or nothing and they abandon themselves to a heart-stopping journey into the depths of the night.
