Follow a pair of carnivorous mermaid sisters drawn ashore to explore life on land in an alternate 1980s Poland. Their tantalizing siren songs and otherworldly auras make them overnight sensations as nightclub singers in the half-glam, half-decrepit world of Smoczynska's imagining. The director gives fierce teeth to her viscerally sensual, darkly feminist twist on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Mermaid", in which the girls' bond is tested and their survival threatened after one sister falls for a human.

Are there any movies in the Criterion Collection that aren't super boring or mega-pretentious? The opening scene made me think it had promise and then... singing.

It's a damn Polish musical. WTF? Bad music. Ugly people.

This movie was super weird...but I liked it? A bloodthirsty retelling of the Little Mermaid set in an alternative 1980s Poland. Oh, and it’s a musical.
