Undine

Drama Fantasy Romance


 

When a lecturer on Berlin's urban development named Undine is betrayed by her lover, she must kill him and return to the water as determined by the myth of the undines.

Drawn from tales sourced in folklore, "Undine" is beautifully crafted and stylishly composed, and it's a pleasure to watch on the big screen. When the credits roll an understandable reaction is to want to watch it again to look for clues or threads to add to the fullness of this mystical and romantic piece. No matter the number of viewings, the story remains detached from everyday realism, and the most intriguing elements are garnered from the fable. A fish out of water.
