For such a romantic, Christian Petzold sure likes to keep his audience at arm’s length. The German director of alt-history star-crossed romances like the 2018 stunner Transit ventures into folklore with his latest cosmic romance Undine, a chilly, cryptic film that spends most of its runtime searching for a soul.

Amazon announced in September 2020 that the film, which had finished shooting only weeks earlier, would be available for streaming a month later.
