Based on The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen.
Originally produced as a motion picture in 2015.
English title: The lure.
Summary 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.
Note Special features: new program about the making of the film, featuring interviews with director Agnieszka Smoczyńska, actors Marta Mazurek and Michalina Olszańska, screenwriter Robert Bolesto, Kijowski, composers Barbara and Zuzanna Wrońskie, sound designer Marcin Lenarczyk, and choreographer Kaya Kołodziejczyk; deleted scenes; Aria divia (2007 ; a fiction film about a housewife and her neighbor, the diva) and Viva Maria! (2010 ; a documentary about opera singer Maria Fołtyn), two short films by Smoczyńska; trailer; new English subtitle translation; essay by novelist, playwright, and storyteller Angela Lovell.
