Sebastian Schipper’s Victoria is a 134-minute film shot entirely in one single take. Schipper and cinematographer Sturla Brandth Grovlen filmed the entire thing across 22 locations and with 150 extras in one genuine two-hour plus stint.
As The Hollywood Reporter‘s Stephen Dalton writes, “Starting at 4.30am, Schipper shot continuously for over two hours in 22 locations with 150 extras, six assistant directors and three sound crews, yet we never catch a glimpse of the military-style off-screen choreography all this must have required.”
The newly acquired film is slated to be released in the U.S. later this year. Watch the trailer below.
