Poland | 2015 | Agnieszka Smoczyńska
Hans Christian Andersen goes Goth and new wave in this imaginative and outlandish horror musical, set in 1980s Poland. It follows a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters who go ashore and land gigs as strippers and singers in a half-glam, half-gritty nightclub. While living among the humans, one sibling looks for love, the other for dinner. A future cult classic, it’s like The Hunger with scales. “[A] wholly original and ominously enchanting nightmare.” –Indiewire. Adults only! Cleveland premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 92 min.
