Explore The WETLANDS With The Exclusive NSFW Clip

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
David Wnendt's adaptation of Charlotte Roche's cult novel Wetlands caused quite the stir at the Sundance film festival and not just for the reasons you might assume. 

It's a given, really, that any movie about a teen girl obsessed with her own bodily functions - particularly of the sexual variety - is going to arch a brow or two but Wnendt here delivers more than just flesh. This thing's good. Like really, really good. And with a twenty city US launch coming September 5th we've got an exclusive - and, yes, NSFW - clip to let you know what you're in for.

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, but ends up forming an unlikely bond with her male nurse, Robin (Christoph Letkowski) in the process.

Check out the clip - and trailer - below.

  • Pat

    Just did some research on the book. Is there really pus eating?

  • I saw the movie last Year in German Cinema and it is a masterpiece. It is disgusting but also depp and has a good cinematographie.

  • Ha! 'Disgusting but also deep' kind of sounds like our motto around here ...

  • :D The disgusting Scenes in the Movie also in the Book are a critic at the modern hygiene standarts and how stupied some of they are and as had a hard family drama in it. I will change the way, you look at German Cinema. Some scenes are like Enter the Void.
