Synopsis

Best Actress, FIPRESCI Prize, Berlin Film Festival

In this bewitching magical realist tale of love, seduction, and loss, Undine (Paula Beer, Transit, Frantz) works as a historian lecturing on Berlin’s urban development. But she is no ordinary woman. When the man she loves leaves her, the myth of the water nymph with whom she shares a name catches up with her; Undine is fated to claim the life of the man who betrayed her and return to the water. Celebrated German filmmaker Christian Petzold spins gold from a fabulous tale that sees Undine seek to reclaim her own destiny, as she finds love anew with the kind-hearted Christoph (Franz Rogowski, In the Aisles, Transit).

“After a trio of masterful period pics, German director Christian Petzold returns to the present while veering into the realm of the supernatural with this overripe female-centered romance.”
