Cinema Omnivore - Undine (2020) 7.2/10
4 December 2020 | by lasttimeisawSee all my reviews

"Without giving away too many clues, Petzold captivates us with the divine, scintillating underwater sequences of the lovers (Undine is carried off by a giant catfish), underpinning Undine's numinous affinity to the liquid world without startling Christoph's suspicion, it is an accident in his eyes and all is well after all. When disruption finally transpires, it is another inexplicably preternatural happenstance that pulls wool over viewers' eyes (who is the night caller?), and in retrospect, all can be boiled down to the curse Undine coldly uttered in the beginning."
