Hailing out of Australia is Cate Shortland’s Berlin Syndrome, which recently screened in Sundance’s World Cinema Dramatic Competition. Vertical Entertainment acquired the film just ahead of the acclaimed film festival.
Penned by Shaun Grant, a passionate holiday romance takes an unexpected and sinister turn when an Australian photographer wakes one morning in a Berlin apartment and is unable to leave.
Warm Bodies‘s Teresa Palmer stars with Max Riemelt.
Vertical is set to release on May 5th, while we’ve also nabbed the film’s sinister first international trailer. It may or may not be a possession film, with Riemelt abducting Palmer’s character and locking her in his apartment. It’s all very uncomfortable, with the above photo being worth a thousand words.
