Story


Eighteen year-old Helen Memel (Carla Juri) likes to skateboard, masturbate with vegetables and thinks that body hygiene is greatly overrated. Struggling with her parents divorce, she spends her time experimenting and breaking one social taboo after the other with her best friend, Corinna (Marlen Kruse). When a shaving accident lands her in the hospital, she sees it as a way to reconcile her parents and forms an unlikely bond with her male nurse, Robin (Christoph Letkowski). "Wetlands" is an unapologetically vulgar coming-of-age tale about divorce, first love and anal fissures.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a truly funny, subversive movie about a woman's obsession with the human body and sex..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..Juri's performance makes it impossible to divert your eyes from the screen, no matter how much you might want to, and a brave film that eventually succumbs to convention is still braver than most..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]
“.."Wetlands" succeeds because, like Helen, it manages to sincerely embrace its taboos..”
by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]
