Berberian Sound Studio1hr 32min.
UK 2012. Directed by Peter Strickland. With Toby Jones, Tonia Sotiropoulou, Susanna Cappellaro.
With a five-star review in The Telegraph, describing it as “the standout picture at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival”, Berberian Sound Studio is the second feature directed by Peter Strickland, winner of the Silver Bear at Berlin for his first film Katalin Varga. Set in a 1970s Italian film studio, Toby Jones (My Week with Marilyn, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) plays the naïve and unworldly Gilderoy, the analogue engineer hired to create the weird and ghastly sounds effects needed for the horror film he becomes drawn into, until the lines between reality and art become blurred.
