Four stars out of five.

How do you describe ‘Victoria’?

Birdman in Berlin maybe; True Rope-mance  possibly  – but this is a triumph for director Sebastian Schipper. One marvels at the extraordinary achievement of a film shot in one miraculous 2 hour 20 minute take across one night in Berlin.

Anchored by a charming and assured central performance from Laia Costa,  I was transfixed as the movie swerved from indie romance to crime thriller.

In one glorious take.

Visceral, kinetic, emotional. Recommended
