ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

berberian sound studio

Berberian Sound Studio is a movie about a man named Gilderoy who works in a sound studio. At the sound studio, they make sounds for movies. Gilderoy is from England but he goes to Italy to work on a movie called "The Equestrian Vortex."

In the movie, we see Gilderoy working with his headphones on and using special machines to create different sounds. For example, he might use a coconuts to make the sound of a horse running or vegetables to create the sound of someone getting hit.

As Gilderoy works on the movie, strange things start to happen. He begins to hear disturbing sounds and sees things that confuse him. The line between what is happening in the movie and what is happening in real life starts to blur.

The movie is not violent but it can be scary and confusing because it is hard to tell what is real and what is not. Gilderoy becomes more and more disoriented as he works on the movie and we are left wondering what is really happening.

Overall, Berberian Sound Studio is about the art of sound effects and how they can be used to create a mood or atmosphere in movies. But it is also about the power of the mind and how easily it can be manipulated by the things we hear and see.
