Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

A(nother) film shot in one continuous take. But this one really seems to be only one shot, or at least that’s what we’re told and, above all, what we perceive while watching Victoria. Are digital cameras the reason more directors try to make more films like this one? It’s possible, and it’s already happening. But Victoria is important even if we put it in a context of critical distrust and cynicism, because its only shot takes us giddily –and also with intelligent pauses– through a drunken night of tremendous tension, because we go from seduction intents and street nonsense to escapes, crimes, falls and euphoria. Because, through the course of two hours and twenty minutes, we attend the end of a night in Berlin, a city that, as a film setting, offers enormous possibilities (Tom Tykwer has always known that.) Because the path of this Spanish girl plus four not-so-bright young locals is ever-changing, surprising, extenuating and fascinating. And because the path of director Sebastian Schipper and cameraman and cinematographer Sturla Brandth Grovlen is one prowess everyone will remember. The choice of Laia Costa for the title role is one of those exact, key decisions that mark a career and define a film. JPF
