1976: Berberian Sound Studio is one of the cheapest, sleaziest post-production studios in Italy. Only the most sordid horror films have their sound processed and sharpened in this studio. Gilderoy, a naive and introverted sound engineer from England is hired to orchestrate the sound mix for the latest film by horror maestro, Santini. Thrown from the innocent world of local documentaries into a foreign environment fuelled by exploitation, Gilderoy soon finds himself caught up in a forbidding world of bitter actresses, capricious technicians and confounding bureaucracy.

Cinephiles will fall in love with Berberian Film Studio… – Toronto Film Scene

The narrative rule of thumb is show, don’t tell. Writer and director Peter Strickland does the opposite with his tense cinematic puzzle Berberian Sound Studio, to sinister (and sometimes slyly comedic) effect. – The National Post
