Poland. Dir. Agnieszka Smoczynska. 2015, 92 mins. In Polish with English subtitles. With Marta Mazurek, Michalina Olszanska, Kinga Preis. At long last: the mermaid-vampire disco musical you’ve been waiting for. This wildly imaginative fantasy plays like a gonzo take on the Little Mermaid as sibling sirens of the sea, Silver (Marta Mazurek) and Golden (Michalina Olszanska), test the waters of the human world while working as showgirls in a night club—but things get complicated when love and vampirism enter the mix. An outré mix of horror, fairy tale, and 1980s Communist kitsch, The Lure won a Sundance Special Jury Award for Unique Vision and Design.
