When I rented this movie,I thought "oh-no,this better not be a sappy cutesy remake!" But I was astounded.
The Russian tale of "Rusalochka:the Mermaid" is striking similar to Anderson's tale.I do admit,it was hard to follow since the version I saw was in Russian w/o Subtitles,but it did capture my interest.My favorite scenes of the film were the dance and festival sequences.
Sure,this ain't no Disney,but it was better executed and not to mention better acting!
