Storyline

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. Written by Anonymous

Bad on every level. Just trust me

Trust me, this movie is bad on every level. Trust me, you don't have to watch this. Watch it, and I told you so.

There's no resolution on every aspects. You waited, maybe the ending have something surprising, but even that so lame. You can just remember all movies that you have watched, took some stories from those movies you know and voila, Berlin Syndrome. You think, maybe the movie will have something unique, but none whatsoever, even less, it's just plain.

Can't believe they make this kind of movie anymore. Hey, we have this left over from plates, why not we concoct a film that looks good and promising, but the truth we don't take out anything from our pocket; because, extra money won't hurt. Plainly just for profit.
