Watch: Trailer for Impressive Single Shot Action Thriller 'Victoria'

February 17, 2015


If you're drooling over the magnificent achievement that is Birdman, then you might want to pay attention to this forthcoming action thriller called Victoria coming out of Berlin. Sebastian Schipper directs the action thriller as a single, unbroken shot that lasts over two hours. The trailer just flat out tells you this little detail, and you'll see how impressive it is that Schipper and director of photography Sturla Brandth Grovlen were able to pull it off, especially with so many locations. And if you need any more convincing, respected director Darren Aronofsky said, "This film rocked my world," when he gave Grovelen the Outstanding Artistic Contribution Silver Bear for the production's impressive cinematography. Watch it!

Here's the Berlin trailer for Sebastian Schipper's Victoria (via Moviepilot):


Victoria (Laia Costa), a young Spanish woman, dances through the Berlin scene with abandon. She meets Sonne (Frederick Lau), Boxer (Franz Rogowski) and Blinker (Burak Yigit) outside of a club, and Sonne and Victoria take a fancy to each other, slipping away from the group at the first opportunity. But their tender flirting is rudely interrupted by the others because, for these pals, the night is far from over. To settle an old debt they have to pull off a dodgy deal. And because one of them is too drunk, they decide that Victoria, of all people, should take over the role of driver. Sebastian Schipper directs Victoria, a single-take action thriller which played at Berlinale and Adopt Films will release it in the United States sometime in 2015.

The problem with gimmicks is, the more you see them, the more 'gimmicky' they seem.

This seems very very uselessly done

For such a groundbreaking achievement, that's a VERY mediocre trailer. They don't even mention it's one shot in the friggin trailer! Terrible marketing for such high acclaim. Not the filmmakers fault, but I'd be pissed if I were them.

that's what that giant ONE TAKE was about...

I stand corrected sir. Idk why I missed that upon first viewing! But still... the trailer...not inspiring me to see it. And I'm a fan of one take shots (ie Touch of Evil, Children of Men)

To be honest, I share your opinion of the trailer. I'm more interested in it because Aronofsky was into it

If Darren gives this film his blessing, then I think it is worth my time.
