Rusalochka : The Little Mermaid


For my movie-loving Mer-friends, another take on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid, shot in 1976 – the haunting Russian film “Rusalochka”

A statue of the Little Mermaid sits in Copenhagen's harbor. The statue is based on a story by Hans Christian Andersen, an author who lived in Copenhagen.

“As the story opens, a bus-full of tourists are touring Copenhagen. Their guide draws their attention to the beautiful statue at Langelinie. At that, the film’s focus moves below the waterline, where several fish tell the story of Rusalochka, “The Little Mermaid”
