Lisa Brühlmann previously directed Hylas und die Nymphen (2013), based on the Greek myth and painting of the same name. She said of her long-time fascination with nymphs/mermaids: "The mermaid has a sense of anarchy which was something that really fascinated me and I wanted to tell a story [about it]." See more »
It was boring, made me skip a couple of times, the cinematography was admirable only in a few places, the rest was bland. It felt as though you were watching another angsty teen movie than a story about a mermaid, making it seem that the mermaid part was just a little background play to make things more interesting. The only thing that clued she could be a mermaid was her eating raw fish once in a while, most of the film focused on her drinking, partying, abusing drugs and having sex. I honestly can't understand what kind of message they were trying to send, but I believe they failed. Would not recommend or watch again.
