Here’s a first official look at Berlin Syndrome, the upcoming thriller movie directed by Cate Shortland from a script by Shaun Grant based on the novel by Melanie Joosten and starring Teresa Palmer and Max Riemelt:
“Australian tourist Clare (Teresa Palmer) travels to Berlin to photograph East German architecture and meets Andi (Max Riemelt), a handsome but brooding schoolteacher. After a brief fling, Clare tries to leave, but Andi isn’t ready to let go. She soon finds herself held prisoner in his locked apartment, cut off from the outside world. As her ordeal unfolds, Clare cycles between reasoning with her captor, surrendering to his obsessions, and plotting her escape.”
I doubt the walls of that old apartment are really thick, she should just yell like hell, and someone will call the cops.
Anyway, here’s a teaser poster:
The film has yet to get an official US release date.
