Available on netflix VICTORIA, a german thriller, though much of the dialogue is english. Impressive camera work - the entire picture done in one take and takes place in "real time" - but I wonder why they made the movie without cuts, it wasn't any stronger because it didn't have them. Cuts are what makes cinema cinema, dammit!
The acting is quire good and the writer gives nice details to the characters. A great scene at the 30 min mark is followed by a big shift in the story and the movie goes in an unexpected direction, for me anyway. Ultimately the story is boilerplate but I think it's a pretty good movie, I'll probably watch it again.
