Charming, Gentle Story
3 October 2002 | by (Albuquerque, NM) – See all my reviews

I just rented this movie and was enchanted. It's a very quiet story about a teen ager who meets a couple who are mer-people. They need her help and she befriends and helps them.

There isn't a lot of high-tech action in this story, just beautiful scenery and good acting. This story presents a slightly different "take" on how mer-people would appear to and interact with humans. There is also a sub-plot about the girl learning to deal with loss when her father has to live in another town while he works.

This isn't the best movie you're ever going to see, but it was a pleasant hour-and-a-half.

My 14-year-old daughter who loves mermaids, was sorry to see this tape go back to Blockbuster, as was the rest of the family.
