Reviews


100
New York Post - Sara Stewart
Take note, Lars von Trier: This is how you do a truly funny, subversive movie about a woman’s obsession with the human body and sex.
91
The A.V. Club - Unnamed
Wetlands makes the internal external; the secret, scary bits of female anatomy are on display in a way that isn’t meant to be particularly titillating to the male gaze.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - Boyd van Hoeij
What makes the film so accessible despite its controversial subject matter is Wnendt’s total command of tone, which is never vulgar or intentionally out to shock.
75
Slant Magazine - Diego Semerene
For its general ludic obsession with all things generally thought of as disgusting, the German film Wetlands is stuck in the anal stage.
70
Variety - Scott Foundas
Wetlands might have landed with the thud of empty shock value were Helen not such an innately engaging character, or Juri so commanding in the role.
