All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (7)

  • A timeless magical realist fable with a contemporary feminist message.

  • The narrative failures of the second half are mitigated by the handsome styling and the sea maidens themselves, which retain a mysterious melancholy even after we've seen one up close.

    March 22, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Shahad Ameen announces herself as that most special of filmmakers - a storyteller that can work timely subtext and scathing commentary into a great work of fantasy.

    December 13, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Well-crafted, magical fable with a compelling contemporary feminist message.

    October 28, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • The film is a great technical achievement, with stunning use of black & white photography that plays with the shadowy nature of the village and its shores, and the brightness of the day that feels cynical rather than promising.

  • Harvey and Hannawin always keeps the film intense, suspenseful, and unpredictable. It is all-around a stellar film that will keep you at the edge of your seat.
