Very cute! Also somewhat pornographic :0
this was really trippy-
Very energetic and original. Wonderful matches between images and music. Very insightful meditation on humananity and sexuality. Fabulous pacing too.
Did you realize that the theme was a first goodbye and not little mermaid?!
Awsome. The most visually fascinating and music is mesmerizig! The characters are totally whacky and unpredictable. I can’t believe you guys made this within 3 days.
What a lovely film! A wonderful documentary of New York culture, done in an original way!
Strange yet simple. Haven’t we all been through this one way or another?
story line crap,the actors/actress good,except the dude with the curly hair..
I liked the twirling of umbrellas.
This film is extremely charming. It expresses a subtle sensuality and joy de vire throughout. The music is buoyant and uplifting.
It would be better if you set aside your ego a little and focus on making a good film, just for the sake of making a good film.
nice way to incorporate mermaid parade into the event. nice evocation of the big themes: ephemerality of love, transition from childhood to adulthood, etc.
A seductive piece--a fitting backdrop of the ocean, a collage of eclectic characters--delving into the eternal journey of love. the sea as a metaphor for love. nice symmetry with umbrellas. thanks for putting together a film that resonates with you.
It’s definately a wonderful journey of the beautiful Staten Island as the backdrop. The umbrellas scene was cute.
Dongchan, you have a great sense of humor.
Awsome that you filmed during the Coney mermaid parade. Shoulda given me a holler tho, I always miss the darn thing.
Oh. how Freudian… sitting at the boardwalk between ocean (childhood) and the city (adulthood), and the boyfriend retruning to the sea (childhood and infantile behavior) and, and the way the swap umbrellas the second time showing potential growth, and the one man talking about books (mother love)… only to have the final shot of the Wonder Wheel… which probably represents future potential. hehe just kidding ~jewishfilm.com
Thanks guys for the support. Well I intended Mermaid Love more Jungian-Gaian-Wordsworthian than Freudian. A Freudian approach will totally misunderstand me
great music! who did the music? It has really capture the moments. The elements of story is very poignant, paradoxical, and yet right to the point of all of us. very resonant.
love the umbrella scene
Nice Lee, I love the music in this and the fact that it was done in 72 hours. It was awesome.
