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.

The Australian photographer Clare (Teresa Palmer) is visiting Berlin alone on vacation and taking photos of the buildings since she intends to write a book about architecture. When she stumbles upon the German high school teacher Andi (Max Riemelt), the chemistry is good and they have one night stand in his isolated apartment in an abandoned building. In the morning, Clare wakes up and does not find the key to leave the apartment. When Andi arrives from his work, Clare tells that she was locked but Andi shows the key on the table. Clare spends another night with Andi, but on the next morning she finds that the key does not open the front door and the chip of her cellphone was removed. Soon she learns that Andi is a sexual psychopath and will not let her go away. What will happen to Clare?
"Berlin Syndrome" is a tense and quite theatrical Australian thriller with a storyline very similar to 1965 "The Collector". Teresa Palmer is an excellent actress and has a magnificent performance with Max Riemelt. They practically participate in most of the scenes and have the chance to shine. The direction is precise and the makeup is impressive, giving the sensation to the viewer that the characters are wounded indeed. The pace is adequate to build the tension until the last scene. My vote is seven.
