Malá morská víla

Karel Kachyna Czechoslovakia, 1976

candt's rating of the film The Little Mermaid

Before I watched it, I thought it was going to be another generic retelling of The Little Mermaid, but I was pleasantly surprised. This film is simply enchanting, with a beautiful score, and a great performance by Miroslava Safránková. There is more focus on the character of the Little Mermaid, and it is not simply a love story.
