Overview

The latest film from Christian Petzold (Phoenix, Transit), Undine is an enchanting and enigmatic modern fairytale starring Transit’s Paula Beer and Franz Rogowski. By all appearances, Undine (Beer) is a historian, working a day job as a guide at a Berlin museum. Underneath, however, she’s a water nymph, granted human form because of the love of a mortal man, Johannes (Jacob Matschenz). However, when Johannes betrays her, she believes she has no choice but to kill him and return to the water. That’s until she meets industrial diver Christoph (Rogowski), whose pure and innocent love just might save her.

Winner: Silver Bear
— Berlin International Film Festival 2020
“Transfixing.. Channels the ornate, otherworldly romanticism of Jean Cocteau”
— Little White Lies
“Petzold loves his romantic bargains, his meditations on longing, obsession and deceit, and he unfurls all of that seductive cloth of gold in Undine
— TIME
“Petzold remains a master of capturing frantic characters doomed by dark obsessions”
— IndieWire

Why You Should See This Film

Like Petzold’s previous films Barbara, Phoenix, and Transit, Undine is a story of impossible love. Blending the supernatural, the mythical, the historical and the romantic, Undine departs from Petzold’s previous work and becomes its own magnificent beast entirely. Embrace its unique logic, and Undine will cast a spell over you.
