Victoria (2015): Schipper’s Thriller, Shot in One Continuous Take

Adopt Films has acquired U.S. rights to Sebastian Schipper’s thriller “Victoria,” which won the Silver Bear for outstanding artistic contribution for cinematography at the 2015 Berlin Film Fest.

The deal was negotiated by the Match Factory’s Brigitte Suarez and Thania Dimitrakopoulou and Adopt Films’ Tim Grady and Jeff Lipsky. Adopt plans a late summer/early fall 2015 U.S. release.

“Victoria” was shot by Norwegian-born cinematographer Sturla Brandth Grøvlen in one continuous 134-minute take, bridging 20 locations.

It stars Spanish actor Laia Costa and German thespians Frederick Lau, Franz Rogowski, Burak Yigit, and Max Mauff.

It was produced by Jan Dressler. Although the movie is subtitled in English, most of the film’s dialog is in English, in deference to the common language spoken in the film.
