Variety reviews Cate Shortland’s BERLIN SYNDROME

Variety gives a rave review of director Cate Shortland’s new film BERLIN SYNDROME, shot by HLA’s Germain McMicking and edited by Jack Hutchings.

“Between more trickily opaque stretches of character development, Shortland nails a handful of straight-up, nerve-shredding tension sequences, teasing a version of the film that might have tilted into full-bore horror”

“Editor Jack Hutchings can take a bow for the film’s slinky, insidious rhythm”

“McMicking’s camerawork, finally, is dazzling throughout, manipulating framing and focus to portray Clare’s boxy surroundings as a patchwork landscape of forbidden and permitted spaces, and seeking soul-relieving beauty wherever it can”
