Filmed in a single real-time take over the course of two and a quarter hours, director Sebastian Schipper’s edit-free, Victoria is a dazzling experiment in narrative filmmaking.

At one of Berlin’s infamous underground dance clubs, young Spanish student Victoria (Catalan star Laia Costa) is looking for a little adventure but gets more than she bargained for when she meets charismatic Sonne (Frederick Lau) and his friends, who offer to show her the real Berlin…

This part love story, part heist movie and part thriller isn’t just different for the sake of being different. It’s absolutely brilliant.
