Love can be all-consuming, but sometimes it can make you blind to danger that’s hiding in plain view. That’s the harrowing lesson facing Teresa Palmer in Australian director Cate Shortland‘s nail-biting new thriller, “Berlin Syndrome.”
Max Riemelt co-stars in this adaptation of Melanie Joosten‘s novel about a young woman traveling in Germany who falls for a local. But their chemical connection turns deadly when, one day, she finds herself a prisoner in his apartment. Here’s the official synopsis:
While holidaying in Berlin, Australian photographer, Clare, meets Andi, 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.
