Victoria

Victoria is a 2015 German drama film directed by Sebastian Schipper, starring Laia Costa and Frederick Lau. It was screened in the main competition section of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival where it won the Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution for Cinematography. It received the German Film Award in six categories, including Best Feature Film. It has also been selected to be shown in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. It was one of eight films shortlisted by Germany to be their submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards. However, it lost out to Labyrinth of Lies, after it was disqualified by the Academy because of its high percentage of English dialogue. It is noteworthy for its filming style, with the final cut constituted of a single continuous take.
