i'm assuming at the time Den of Thieves was the only movie he'd seen in 2018 and took that spot by default

David Ehrlich getting owned in the comment section for his LB review of Transit was so funny.

Petzold’s new film Undine to premiere at Berlin

Quote from: The Film Stage
The fairytale-inspired Undine finds him reteaming with Transit stars Paula Beer and Franz Rogowski, Cineuropa reports. Also starring Jacob Matschenz and Maryam Zaree, see a synopsis below for the film that kicked off production last week.
Quote from: Cineuropa
Named after the water nymph that seduces men in a number of mythological tales, the German director’s new movie will portray Undine (Paula Beer) as a history graduate who works as a guide in Berlin in the present day. After her partner (Jacob Matschenz) leaves her for another woman, she is cursed and compelled to kill the man who betrayed her and return to the waters she was once summoned from. Yet unlike the mythological character, in the film, Undine tries to defy her fate. Immediately after the break-up, she meets Christoph (Franz Rogowski), an industrial diver, and falls in love with him. The two have a wonderful time together until he realizes that she is running away from something and starts to feel betrayed.

There's something in the water...

Transit is the only film of his I've scene, but I very much enjoyed it (evocative, quiet, politically electric), so, yeah, I'm excited.
