Undine movie review: romantic myth of mermaid relocated to contemporary Berlin in Christian Petzold’s allegorical drama

  • Undine tells the story of a woman who must kill her cheating boyfriend and return to the water according to an ancient myth
  • The film is a love letter to Berlin, with great performances, but it could have dived deeper into the mythology
