My last and fifth recommendation to upgrade your movie night is Victoria. It is a German drama shot in 2015 directed by Sebastian Schipper. The special fact about this movie is, that it was shot in a single take over two hours. First screened at the Berlin film festival where it won the Silver Bear for Cinematography. The camera follows exchange student Victoria on a dark night with a band of criminal Berliners. The film starts in a techno club in Berlin’s Mitte district around 4am and ends with a bank robbery.
But what would be a movie night without some food to hold on to? This week Nina from Törtchen - Made in Berlin made Nachos. Not German but delicious.
- Preheat oven to 200 degree.
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
- Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
- Spread the mixture over the lined tray.
- Bake the nachos 30 min (circulating air).
- Let them cool about 10 min and cut them with a pizza cutter in triangles.
- Put them back in the oven until they are golden and crispy.
