Starring Teresa Palmer and Max Riemelt, Berlin Syndrome is a gripping thriller from acclaimed Australian director Cate Shortland.
Alone and adrift in Berlin, Australian Photographer Clare (Palmer) meets charismatic local Andi (Riemelt) and there is an instant attraction between them. But what begins as a passionate romance takes a sinister turn when Clare wakes up one morning to discover Andi has locked her in his apartment, and he has no intention of letting her leave, ever.
