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.


Victoria is a Spanish girl who moved to Berlin three months ago, works in a cafe for a meager wage, does not speak German and does not know anybody in the new city. Leaving a club at around 4 o'clock in the morning after a night of dancing and drinking, she meets four young men who are denied entry to the club. They are "Sonne" (sun), "Boxer", "Blinker" (turn signal), and "Fuss" (foot). The men invite her to take a walk through the city and she agrees. After stealing some alcohol from an all night shop, they all get on the roof of an apartment building where they drink and smoke marijuana together, while Boxer reveals that he spent time in jail for hurting someone.

High school teacher Rainer Wenger is forced to teach a class on autocracy, despite being an anarchist. When his students, third generation after the Second World War, do not believe that a dictatorship could be established in modern Germany, he starts an experiment to demonstrate how easily the masses can be manipulated. He begins by demanding that all students address him as "Herr Wenger", as opposed to Rainer, and places students with poor grades beside students with good grades—purportedly so they can learn from one another and become better as a whole. When speaking, they must stand and give short, direct answers. Wenger shows his students the effect of marching together in the same rhythm, motivating them by suggesting that they could really annoy the anarchy class, which is below them. Wenger suggests a uniform, to remove class distinction and further unite the group. Mona argues it will remove individuality, as well. Karo shows up to class without the uniform and is ostracised. The students decide they need a name, deciding on "Die Welle" (The Wave). Karo suggests another name, which ends up with one single vote cast by herself.

1945. L' Allemagne nazie, en pleine anarchie, vit ses dernières heures avant de capituler. Les troupes allemandes de la Wehrmacht sont pourchassées par les forces alliées tandis que les déserteurs se font exécuter. Massacres, viols ou encore pillages règnent sur cette Allemagne en pleine déroute. Après avoir perdu son régiment, le jeune brigadier allemand Willi Herold erre pour tenter d'échapper à un commando qui veut l'abattre. Affamé et affaibli, Herold découvre sur son chemin, dans une voiture abandonnée, l'uniforme couvert de médailles d'un capitaine nazi mort de la Luftwaffe. Pour échapper à sa mort programmée, il décide de le revêtir pour se camoufler et échapper à ceux qui veulent le tuer. Un camouflage idéal, l'uniforme étant le symbole de la puissance et surtout de l'autorité.
