Index of Berlin Syndrome 2017 HDdownload While holidaying in Berlin, Australian photojournalist, 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 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. Ever.
I caught this movie at a preview screening, not knowing much at all, and was extremely impressed. Berlin Syndrome is a superbly taut thriller that takes a well worn scenario and thrillingly reinvents it.
Perhaps in the hands of someone else, this would’ve been a disposable B movie, or perhaps even something as over the top as I Spit on Your Grave, but Shortland ensures the focus of the film is on character. Captive and captor are never, ever two dimensional. Both Teresa Palmer and Max Reimelt deliver powerful and stunningly complex performances. What separates the film from other kidnap thrillers is how sympathetic and normal Andi, the captor, is. He’s charming, erudite and curiously rational, only harming his captive in circumstances where she tries to escape. He’s a hopeless romantic, who resorts to crime for fear of a spark shared between two people dissipating. Reimelt channels all these emotions with admirable subtlety.
