The Shape of Water. Blue My Mind. The Lure. SpringThe Lighthouse. What could be behind the recent wave (no pun intended) of movies featuring humanoid sea creatures?

The latest filmmaker to explore this idea is Germany's Christian Petzold, who reteams with his Transit stars Paula Beer and Franz Rogowski for Undine.

Drawing on the titular myth, Undine sees Beer play a historian in Berlin who discovers she has a connection with the legend of the water nymph.

Undine will receive its world premiere later this month at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Check out the first trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

Undine works as a historian lecturing on Berlin’s urban development. But when the man she loves leaves her, the ancient myth catches up with her. Undine has to kill the man who betrays her and return to the water.
