Commentaries and bibliography
“I am Empty Space :” A Mermaid in Hyperreal Moscow, Mihaela MIHAILOVA, kinokultura.com, 2011
Anna Melikian : Mermaid (Rusalka, 2007), Chip CRANE, kinokultura.com, 2008
 
This film by Azerbaijani director Anna Melikian is a modern fairy tale in which age-old myths and youthful imagination are merged in a surreal urban romance. The dream-like storyline is mirrored by the visual approach Anna Melikian has chosen to recount the adventures of a ‘mermaid’ who finds herself washed up inland.
