Have you seen Victoria yet? I will not tell you anything about the plot. It’s better if you don’t know anything – because this gigantically delirious idea of a movie can’t be told. It has to seen as a full composition of film making.
One night, one cut, one incredible German movie. In fact: one incredible Berlin movie. If you can manage to forget about everything else, you will find the plot to be as “contemporary Berlin” as can be. And the best thing is: it’s a bit on the wild side of everything, but thankfully catches itself somewhere along the line.
Sebastian Schipper, director of the movie, really did something great here. Apart from portraying Berlin very accurately, he was also brave enough to make a German movie that did not stick to the facts. Victoria is definitely an outstanding Berlin movie and deserves to be on a top list.
