A modern fairy tale inspired by the dark myth of a water fairy who earns a soul only by marrying a human. In the latest work by popular German director Christian Petzold (Barbara, Phoenix, Transit), Undine (Paula Beer) is a historian and young urban woman working at a museum. When her lover Johannes leaves her, Udine must conform to the ancient myth: if the man she loves betrays her, she must kill him and return to the water. But before she carries out her plan, Christoph catches her eye. In this modern reinterpretation of The Little Mermaid, Undine casts off the role of the rejected helpless woman and falls in love again. The film premiered at Berlinale, where Paula Beer won the Silver Bear for best actress.
