FRA/GER | dir. Christian Petzold with Paula Beer, Franz Rogowski, Maryam Zaree

Christian Petzold (Barbara) reunites with his Transit leads Paula Beer and Franz Rogowski for this sly, amusing and swoon-inducing love story, a clever update on the myth of the Undine – a water nymph who becomes human when she falls in love but is doomed if that love wans. In a film that keeps you constantly, pleasingly off-kilter, Beer is luminous as the eponymous lead, a performance for which she deservedly took the Silver Bear for Best Actress at the 2020 Berlinale.
