Did You Know?

Trivia

The original screenplay was very short (only 12 pages), since a large part of the dialogue was improvised. Because of this, the writers are credited for story and not for screenplay. See more »

Goofs

When Sonne comes back in Victoria's coffee shop and Fuß sits down because he has to throw up, you can see a head coming from behind the wall in the background. Probably from a crew member. See more »

Absolute Must See For Film Fans
25 April 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't want to summarise the plot too much, if at all, because I think this is the sort of movie you should go into a bit clueless - BUT, what can you expect is an amazing, edge-of-your seat thriller, beautiful cinematography, and great acting.

Here in the UK we miss out on ever hearing about most European movies like this one, smaller budget with unknown actors. But this one is getting a little attention for it's 'one-take' concept, in that the entire movie really was shot in one take. It's one hell of a feat, considering the intense action scenes included, but they pull it off wonderfully. It gives the feeling of being along for the ride, and personally kept my attention gripped for the entire movie.

The titular character Victoria is a complicated girl, and you are given but tidbits of information as the story goes on, never quite a complete picture but a sense of her emotions, and her reasoning for the pertinent decisions she makes throughout the story. The other actors are also all excellent, much of the dialogue was improvised and it felt very natural to me, capturing the difficulties between speakers of different languages perfectly.

The main criticism I have seen on this site is that the audience didn't understand why Victoria made certain decisions in the film (again don't want to give anything away) - but I don't understand how that's a problem. Enough was revealed on the journey that with some empathy (assuming IMDb reviewers do have some) I could easily imagine Victoria's mindset, even if I wouldn't have done the same as her - the movie is not about me! Sorry that's my rant over.

I rated it a 9 because visually it was beautiful in a very simple way, it was not at all predictable, and it had me questioning my own decisions afterwards - which is what I look for in a movie.
