Check out the NSFW trailer for the gross and sexually-charged film Wetlands

Aug. 15, 2014by:

I like all kinds of movies and when I was younger, the more disturbing the better. Even now, I like a good and shocking piece of cinema, but the trailer for WETLANDS is grossing me out. Maybe it is because I am getting older or maybe it is because of the shaving scene, but this is one NSFW preview.

Leave it to the Germans to produce a film like WETLANDS. Now, I am not a prude and this isn't shocking simply because it is a woman. I would absolutely be repulsed if it was a guy doing the same things. And it isn't even the sexual stuff. The scene showing her walking barefoot through raw sewage made me gag a little.

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.

The film is garnering a good deal of acclaim on the festival circuit and based on the trailer, the performances look pretty good. We get quite a few coming of age stories in American indie films but WETLANDS is currently getting the recognition. Hopefully this is not all shock value and there truly is a decent movie in there.

WETLANDS opens in limited release beginning September 5th.

I had to stop watching. The worst part of the trailer is when it said, "Sundance Film Festival." That shit almost made me throw up and now I know the movie will be crap. Hasn't been a good thing from Sundance since Lucky Number Slevin. I remember Sundance was for good indi movies to get noticed. Now it's for art house garbage, where the less sense it makes the more the hipsters enjoy it.

Interesting adaptation

I wondered when this book would get around to being adapted for the big screen. I wonder what it does for people to know that the book is partly autobiographical.

I hear there's great real estate in the narrow minded.

Screw that noise

But I like her German. It's a nice voice. Maybe I'm bias, but it's also not enough for me to give two shits about this mess of a loud-ass annoying trailer. Looks like it wants to be something "important", but is just loud and obnoxious.

Pretty much the definition of trying too hard. Agree with Tclayton.

Nope

This looks shocking and random in the hopes of being edgy and those are the worst kinds of movies in my opinion. I would rather watch a stupid, action-filled Michael Bay film(which is saying something) instead of pretentious garbage like this...but I could also be wrong and this movie is amazing making this entire post pointless...who the fuck knows?

That's pretty much what I thought of Serbian Film. Just shock porn with absolutely nothing to say. And yet it tried to pass itself off as political allegory or some pretentious bullshit like that.
