Margaret Pomeranz introduces the Australian-French psychological thriller Berlin Syndrome (2017) - Cate Shortland's third feature film.

In this clip from Margaret Pomeranz Presents Pomeranz refers to Cate as 'one of our most talented filmmakers today'.

The introduction includes clips from the film starring Teresa Palmer and Max Riemelt. Pomeranz also mentions the important role that the architecture of the former East Berlin plays in the film, and the clips chosen echo this.

Overall, the excerpts from the film succeed in hinting at the dramatic tension present in the film - Pomeranz calls it 'tantilising in its intensity' - whilst not spoiling the film for viewers.

The film was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize for World Cinema (Dramatic) along with 8 AACTA Award nominations.
