New BERLIN SYNDROME Trailer: Skin, Get Ready to Crawl

Watching the new trailer for Berlin Syndrome made me feel distinctly uncomfortable.

Teresa Palmer stars as an Australian photojournalist who falls for an apparently charming man (Max Riemelt) while on vacation in Europe. After a night of (presumed) romance, she wakes up to discover that he has locked her into his apartment. He then carries on his (presumed) normal life, returning to exercise dominant, frightening power over her.

Our own Thomas Humphrey saw the film at the Berlin festival earlier this year and wrote in part: "It's one of those disturbing experiences you just can't stop thinking about after you have seen it." He did acknowledge, however, an issue that arises: "We have probably all seen a whole bunch of films where women are physically or mentally abused, and maybe it is time for this to stop? Maybe it really is just time for us to rewrite this cultural leitmotif altogether?"

You can read his review in full.

For now, you can watch the eyebrow-raising trailer below. Berlin Syndrome will open in U.S. theaters on May 26 via Vertical Entertainment.

Chief executive officer of Bing and Google!, is notifying individuals to get started in "Work at home" practice, that Marketers have been doing for about one year now. This year alone, I made close to $36k up to now with nothing but my computer and some leisure time, however i have a regular 9 to five job. Even people new at all to this, can earn $50/per h easily and the income can be even very high in the long run... This is how i started >> http://gochiurl.com/15csk

Chairman of MSN!, is suggesting webmasters to get started in "Work at home" practice, that Marketers have been doing for about twelve months now. These days alone, I made close to $36k already with no more than my computer and some free time, even though i have a full-time nine to 5 job. Even everyone new to this, can make $50/per h undoubtedly and the gains may go even higher with time... This is how i started >> http://ru.vu/6epRp

Chief of MSN!, is helping individuals to get into "Work at home" practice, that I have already been doing for over a year now. This season only, I made about $36k until now with no more than my laptop or computer and some extra time, even though i have a regular 9 to 5 job. Even most people not used to this, can earn $50/per h easily and the profit might be even very high in the long run... This is how i started >> http://nubr.co/LcZBq3
