Movie Info

Christian Petzold (PHOENIX, TRANSIT) boldly reimagines the ancient myth of Undine in this suspenseful tale of romance and betrayal in modern day Berlin. Undine (Paula Beer) works as a historian lecturing on Berlin's urban development. But when the man she loves leaves her, the myth catches up with her. Undine has to kill the man who betrays her and return to the water. Will Undine defy fate when she meets a diver (Franz Rogowski) offering her a chance at new love?

All Critics (129) | Top Critics (32) | Fresh (114) | Rotten (15)

  • Undine's area of study is Berlin's gradual architectural mutation from century to century; a shot of two lovers diving among submerged ruins whispers a warning that all things-from true love to civilization itself-must pass.

  • Undine's hauntingly aching romance is enchanting, as thick as the feeling of inhaling water into your lungs.

    July 16, 2021 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The German director Christian Petzold is a maestro of modern (or modernized) myths.

    July 2, 2021 | Full Review…
  • This is classic Petzold territory, where you can dwell in a place, or a relationship, without ever quite belonging there.

  • I don't think this film came together to a point for a Christian Petzold film. I was pretty disappointed.

    June 8, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Petzold asks what love is, and offers surrender as an answer; he asks what surrender is, and offers violence as an answer. Undine drenches you in the force of its romance and its dread.

  • There is plenty to appreciate in Undine. Petzold use of actual underwater shots, quiet moments between Undine and Christoph, among other locations all come together to create a world these lovers can inhabit. Excellent cinematography by Hans Fromm.

    August 1, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Viewers in search of answers to every single narrative question will be left disappointed, but there's something delectably playful about the way the movie washes over you.
