The Little Mermaid (2011)

Storyline

Deep in a barren, fantastical wasteland lays a dilapidated circus tent. Inside, an ominous ringmaster forces his prized act, a real live mermaid to perform for a group of grimy, working class spectators. The mermaid, though frightening, is but a lovesick, caged animal praying for release from her endless torture. Unwilling to surrender his meal ticket, the ringmaster rejects her pleas for compassion and continues to confine the mermaid to her stagnant holding tank. With nowhere to escape to, the mermaid must make the choice between holding on to the hope of freedom and putting an end to her abuse. Produced by Samantha Jewell, Lindsey Mann, Justin Simon and Aliya Tarmo through the VFS Compendium series and Directed by Nicholas Humphries (Riese: Kingdom Falling), The Little Mermaid is a twisted re-imagining of the classic Hans Christian Anderson tale. Written by Anonymous

the state
17 March 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

The state of viewer seeing . it is the basic significant thing. because "The Little Mermaid" is a gem for inspired use of tools from music to cinematography and landscape, silence and gasps and the "holes" of story who , at the first sigh, are the problem of it. a circus, a memaid in a bath tank. in a tent. few simple viewers. and something to defines it more than a horror. a cold poetry of image. an isolated world. the traits of old fairy tales. and it is enough for a real beautiful film.
