The Balance of Form and Content in Victoria
When Sebastian Schipper chose to make the film Victoria in 2015 it was either going to be a recipe for a brilliant triumph or complete disaster. The entire 2 hour and 20 minute film was shot in one continuous take. The script was only 12 pages long leaving the dialogue to be improvised. The plot called for multiple locations, car chases, shoot outs, intimate quiet scenes, wild dance club scenes, roof tops, car interiors and much more. It was shot three times, and the last take was the one chosen to be the film. If ever a huge risk reaped great rewards Victoria is it.
