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.

“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”
