UNDINE

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.

Undine is an interesting viewing experience, in which you are unsure as to where it is heading. But storyline comparisons to The Shape Of Water may come up in this strange but certainly watchable tale.
