MPSIFF 2015: This is Jeremy’s pick as the Best of the Fest already. Shot in a single-take over two hours (truly, no editing trickery ala Rope or Birdman), this story about a young woman innocently falling in with a group of low-level street thugs is taut, compelling, and really works. It really builds and I’m still thinking about it. The cinematographer, Sturla, was here with the film and it was very enjoyable chatting with him about the process. They rehearsed around Berlin for three weeks and once they were prepped, they filmed it only three times. Shot handheld on a Canon C300 with a Zeiss 24mm lens and lots of hidden mics and crew members. Impressive stuff.
