Shot in one continuous and unedited long take, this stunning thriller from director Sebastian Schipper centers around Spanish club-goer Victoria (Laia Costa) on holiday in Berlin. After leaving a nightclub, she meets a clique of Berlin natives, including the endearing Sonne (Frederick Lau). The group continues to drink and explore the city until the recently-released from prison Boxer (Franz Rogowski) gets a troubling call from a former associate. With time running out for Boxer to repay a debt, Victoria drives the men to an underground meeting, and unwittingly becomes the getaway driver for a bank robbery. Aided by astonishing camerawork, the tension rises to a fever pitch as the group tries to avoid detection.
