About the Film:

Ends Monday, April 25.

From Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer), China's all-time box office champion is making a splash at The Little!

Reviews have called this fantasy/romance/comedy one of the year's wildest blockbusters (and filled with "absurd goofballery.")


Xuan's estate project involving reclamation of the sea threatens the livelihood of the mermaids who rely on the sea to survive. Shan is dispatched to stop Xuan and this leads them into falling for each other. Out of his love for Shan, Xuan plans to stop the reclamation. Unfortunately, Shan and the other mermaids are hunted by a hidden organisation and Xuan has to save Shan before it's too late.
