December 13, 2018

Fairy tale whimsy, spectacular Russian insults, and interplanetary fraud are just some of the aspects of Anna Melikyan's 2007 film Mermaid discussed in the first episode of season 3 of the Russophiles Unite Movie podcast.

This time around, Ally is joined by podcasters and fairy tale superfans Marilag Angway and Meghan Griffin. Check out their podcast Fableulous Retellings at!

Expect SPOILERS from about 19 minutes in until the end.

CONTENT WARNING: suicide is a recurring theme of the film and there's quite a bit of nudity.
