Michiel Huisman, Teresa Palmer and Sam Reid’s latest movie is about a man whose life is derailed when an ominous pattern of events repeats itself in exactly the same manner every day, ending at precisely 2:22 p.m.
Directed by Paul Currie, I’m intrigued by this trailer mainly because of Huisman. Though, I’m certainly not convinced that the end result will be great. Maybe a shorter version of the trailer that wasn’t forced to end precisely at 2:22 minutes would have made me feel better. Who knows. Whilst we’re at it, I’d also like it for this movie to have something thought provoking to say about the patterns that keep repeating in our lives. That way I can be forced to eat my words. I wouldn’t mind that in the slightest.
A young woman is travelling alone, she meets an intriguing guy, ends up at his place and wakes up to find that she can’t leave. This is the story of Berlin Syndrome, a passionate holiday romance that turns into an unhealthily obsessive relationship. Directed by Cate Shortland, Teresa Palmer, Max Riemelt and Lucie Aron star…
Berlin Syndrome may end up being my favourite of Palmer’s perforamnces to date. Especially since I don’t currently have one. Intriguing subject matter, I just have to be ready to be uncomfortable for the length of the film.
Also, I don’t know if the right advice should be that soon-to-be female solo travellers should watch this or that they shouldn’t.
