Victoria, Sebastian Schipper‘s German bank-heist film which was shot in a single, unedited take, has won the top prize of the Guild of German Art House Cinemas.
The film, which stars Frederick Lau, Laia Costa and Franz Rogowski as a trio of friends who go from late-night partying in Berlin to a bank robbery, premiered in competition at the Berlin International Film Festival. The film won a Silver Bear for extraordinary artistic contribution for its cinematographer, Sturla Brandth Grovlen.
Victoria picked up a third nod when the jury of readers of the Berlin newspaper Berliner Morgenpost picked it as the best film in the Berlinale competition.
Both the readers’ prize and the art house honor, could bode well for Victoria‘s theatrical release in Germany later this year.
