Check out the pulse-pounded trailer right here…
While holidaying in Berlin, Australian photojournalist Clare (Teresa Palmer) meets charismatic local man Andi (Max Riemelt). There is an instant attraction between them, and a night of passion ensues. But what initially appears to be the start of a romance suddenly 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.
Berlin Syndrome arrives in UK cinemas on 12th May via Curzon Artificial Eye, and we at Filmoria simply cannot wait!
