VICTORIA 1

“Victoria” is a gimmick film from director Sebastian Schipper, who, a long time ago, appeared in the German art-house hit, “Run Lola Run.” Perhaps looking for a way to update the formula, Schipper attempts to razzle-dazzle the audience with a single take, following the action through an unbroken shot that lasts a whopping 134 minutes. As a technical achievement, “Victoria” is impressive, working with loose choreography and precise planning to turn a casual night of drinking into a turbulent series of personal challenges. While it’s a neat idea, Schipper doesn’t have anything more to offer than the cinematographic stunt, taking such a long time to position characters into the heat of the moment, he forgets to add the moment.
