The script for Sebastian Schipper’s film was 12 pages long allowing most of the dialogue to be improvised in this 138 minute German film shot in one continuous take. Russian Ark followed a similar path but was essentially a dreamy documentary about St. Petersburg’s Winter Palace – Schipper’s film follows a more conventional narrative arc in and around the kinetic streets of Berlin. The cinematography is by the strong-backed Sturla Brandth Grøvlen.
