    I really like the poster. The trailer on the other hand didn't really make me want to see the film.

    it does seem very much like an acquired taste/cult.

    So this was a first. A Polish musical with mermaids, nudity, and a little gore. Not really sure how I feel after viewing this. Pretty bizarre film although there is a straightforward plot. The characters break out in song at the drop of a hat kind of like some of the bollywood films. The picture quality is very nice which is expected with a Criterion release. The film is only 92 minutes and the two leads are attractive. Has anyone else seen this?

    Yeah, I dug it too. I like musicals, gore, and nudity. This had all three.

    I caught it theatrically last summer and really enjoyed it, and it's definitely a unique beast. Haven't watched it since, but have been meaning to re-watch it.
