Victoria

VictoriaThe really notable thing to know about the film Victoria is that it was shot in a single, unbroken, unedited, continuous take of 2¼ hours duration.

Before seeing the film all I knew was that it has been described as a heist movie set in Berlin. I found the first hour somewhat slow, wondering where it was going, but gradually a story developed and reached a satisfactory conclusion.

An interesting and technically impressive film, overall I can say I enjoyed it and can recommend. Some may find it overlong. [Warning: At the beginning, the nightclub scene has extreme flashing and very loud music!]

There’s a short Wiki listing the few films that have been shot in a single take.
