Victoria garnered accolades at the Berlin Film Festival and more, amassing major awards for German director Sebastian Schipper, cinematographer Sturla Brandth Grøvlen and actor Laia Costa, who stars as Victoria. The film marks a sea change in the careers of Grøvlen, a Norwegian, and Costa, a Catalonian, who joined Schipper to create a film that evokes the vivacity and shadows of modern Europe at night.
