good blogs that i still haven't found still exist, thank god. thanks to one of them, i found these gorgeous screen captures of the 1979 russian film the little mermaid by vladimir bychkov. i've seen it at an age when i was the actual targeted audience but seeing these made me want to watch it again, looking at it from a slightly different point of view. older russian films, albeit a bit ridiculous sometimes, are so true to the fairytale world they're trying to portray and on top of that have the best costumes. also, the mermaid's hair is amazing, just like any mermaid's hair is supposed to be! another russian film with the ever so present cup of orange tea, ah! i promise, that's not all i do (well, almost all).
