Russian premiere

A modern interpretation of the ancient German legend of Undine, a water nymph. Undine works as a guide at the Berlin City Museum and knows everything there is to know about the history of East and West Berlin. Her stories win her the affections of the young dreamer Christoph, but Undine has a secret from her past – a fatal romance with Johannes, who betrayed her.

Christian Petzold is a leading director of the Berlin School, the key movement in contemporary German auteur cinema, defined by its minimalist approach and focus on the politics of everyday life. He has used the motifs of German Romanticism in his previous films, and Undine is the first in a trilogy dedicated to German myth. The political context of this captivating melodrama, conveyed largely through the history of the city’s development, recedes into the distance without disappearing completely. It serves as the backdrop to a story of love, driven by sea spirits and ghosts of the past.

Born in Hilden, Germany in 1960, Christian Petzold has lived in Berlin since 1981. He studied German and drama at the Free University of Berlin and then, from 1988 to 1994, attended the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (DFFB). He directed his first feature film, Pilotinnen, in 1995. The State I Am In won the German Film Award for Best Feature Film in 2000, and he was awarded the Silver Bear for Best Director for Barbara in 2012. Undine is his fifth film to be presented in the Berlinale Competition and his second collaboration with Paula Beer and Franz Rogowski.
