The Mermaid
director:
Stephen Chow
cast:
Chao Deng, Yun Lin, Show Luo

Stephen Chow’s (Kung Fu Hustle) latest film is the biggest hit ever at the Chinese box office! When their home is threatened by a real estate project, a group of mermaids set a honeytrap for the arrogant project developer. Equal parts eco-thriller, slapstick comedy, and earnest romance, The Mermaid is a great setup for Chow’s comic imagination to really run wild. It’s “…a shame that this exhilarating, bizarre, good-hearted, blatantly obvious sci-fi-fantasy-slapstick eco-fable isn’t getting wider fanfare.” (NY Times)
