Ber­lin Syn­drome

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Out 9 June

The am­bigu­ous bond be­tween an Aussie back­packer (Teresa Palmer) in Ber­lin and her kid­nap­per (Max Riemelt) drives this bold but loose de­tour into psy­cho-thriller turf from Cate Short­land ( Som­er­sault). Palmer im­presses, and there’s sus­pense, but the me­an­der­ing plot­ting be­trays un­cer­tain in­tent: Short­land has things to say about toxic re­la­tion­ships, but the ties to bind her themes need tight­en­ing. Kevin Har­ley
