Berlin Syndrome — Trailer


added: Tue, Mar 28th '17

Australian actress Teresa Palmer, from "Hacksaw Ridge" and "Lights Out," plays a traveling photographer who, after having a romantic encounter with a charismatic German stranger (Max Riemelt; Netflix's "Sense8"), finds herself being lured into a sadistic trap in the newly released trailer for the psychological thriller "Berlin Syndrome."

Based on the book of the same name by Melanie Joosten, the Berlin-set, woman-held-in-captivity film is the latest effort by acclaimed Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland (Lore, Somersault), who directs from a script by Shaun Grant, the screenwriter of the Aussie true-crime thriller "The Snowtown Murders."

"Berlin Syndrome" debuted to good notices at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film has since been acquired by independent distributor Vertical Entertainment. It's now slated for a May 26th theatrical release.

While holidaying in Berlin, Australian photographer, Clare (Teresa Palmer), meets Andi (Max Riemelt), a charismatic local man and there is an instant attraction between them. A night of passion ensues. But what initially appears to be the start of a romance, takes an unexpected and sinister turn when Clare wakes the following morning to discover Andi has left for work and locked her in his apartment. An easy mistake to make, of course, except Andi has no intention of letting her go again. Ever!
