Undine works as a historian lecturing on Berlin's urban development. But when the man she loves leaves her, the ancient myth catches up with her.
The newest film from acclaimed German director Christian Petzold seemingly eschews the filmmaker's streak of identity-hinged thrillers (Phoenix; Transit) for a melodrama that brushes with the supernatural. However, Petzold's signature enigmaticism remains, as this story of star-crossed lovers, history, and myth shines a light on the lush romanticism and intrigue key to his body of work.
"A tremendous romance from one of contemporary cinema's greatest filmmakers."
