Mermaid by Aleksandr Petrov

Posted by Fabio 8 June 2011

Aleksandr Petrov’s style from the late 1980s onward can be characterized as a type of Romantic realism. People, animals and landscapes are painted and animated in a very realistic fashion, but there are many sections in his films where Petrov attempts to depict a character’s inner thoughts and dreams. Mermaid was nominated for an OSCAR in 1998 for Best Animated Short Film.
