Wetlands was described as, “the most wtf, nsfw movie at this year’s sundance film festival,” by whoever was quoted on the poster. This German coming-of-age story is based on Charlotte Roche’s debut novel and focuses on a girl who has divorced parents and unconventional views on hygiene. Was it a groundbreaking exploration of the limits of intimacy, or a loose retelling of The Parent Trap with anal fissures as a plot device?
The film stars up-and-comer Carla Juri (Stationspiraten, Der Kriminalist), and Meret Becker (Die kleine Meerjungrau) in a role unlike anything you’ve seen her in before!
We are joined by guest co-host Sheila Valleri as we probe all the nooks, crannies and orifices of this film which co-host Darrell Taylor said made him want to, “bleach my [his] eyes.”
