The story, written by Stéphane Landowski and Mathias Malzieu, based on the latter’s book, kicks off in Paris, where heavy rains have led to a historic flood of the Seine along with a spate of mysterious disappearances. One night, Gaspard Snow, a melancholic musician, is lured by an enchanting voice – that of a wounded yet beautiful young mermaid. Eager to save her, Gaspard has no idea that he’s about to embark on dramatic adventures which, through the power of love and music, may well mend his broken heart.
Produced by Grégoire Melin for Paris-based outfit Overdrive Productions and by Sébastien Delloye for Belgian firm Entre Chien et Loup, A Mermaid in Paris will be co-produced by Macedonia’s Sisters and Brother Mitevski (Labina Mitevska), and Wonder Films is on board as an associate producer. The feature, which has also received backing from the Manon and Cineaxe Soficas, will be filmed over a period of seven weeks (five weeks in a studio in Macedonia, followed by two weeks of location shooting in France, more specifically in Paris and Étretat). The French theatrical release will be entrusted to Sony Pictures Releasing France, and the international sales (with around 15 territories having already pre-acquired the movie) are being overseen by Kinology.
