  • ‘Warned by Circe, the Goddess, Ulysses ordered his men to tie him up to his ship´s mast. Thus preventing him from surrendering to the enchanting mermaid´s call, which devoured the unwary men seduced by it.’ – The Odyssey

“This is a terrific film that plays with viewers’ expectations in surprising ways. It’s a welcome addition to an old mythology that makes one hope to hear the siren song one day, and, simultaneously, to be armed against it.” ~Lars Johnson (judge)
