Neville Met the Mermaid and the Underwater Photographer Pei for the First Time in that Accident at Sea.

 

Neville, the son of a fisherman, is a free diver at the Orchid Island. One day he is caught in an accident at sea. He believes he was rescued by Pei, an underwater photographer. To thank her, he promises to show her spectacular underwater sights. In return, Pei offers him a business opportunity for his diving. However, Neville’s real rescuer was a mermaid. She sheds her tail and returns to meet Neville again. ‘‘Come into my embrace. Just be a fish.”

Somehow Neville heard the calling of the ocean and the mermaid. Now he has a choice: to return to the ocean, or pursue the opportunity that Pei offers.

 

Director's Statement

Do you love the sea? When I was in a bad mood, I cried at the beach, cried at the seashore, and I was relieved by the sea, leaving the bad mood in the sea. When I left the sea, I returned to the city with a calm heart and continued to work day after day, but The values of the city, and the convenience of lifestyle, do you know that your convenience has undermined the sea that expresses your feelings, because it facilitates the manufacture of endless disposable plastic waste, these disposable plastic wastes are not buried in sight. In the soil, it flows into the sea while at the same time. Urban people's pride, lack of understanding and disrespect of the marine nation in culture, protection and pay for the sea, only when an island is a holiday place, this is the movie that the piranha wanted to say, although a simple love story. In terms of speaking, people who want to finish reading can really love the sea and love their place of residence and use less disposable plastic products.

那次海上意外,是漁夫之子拿威與人魚少女的初識,也是與水底攝影師大霈的相遇。

為了答謝大霈的相救,擅長自由深潛的拿威擔任她的海上嚮導,這片未開發的海底美景讓來自都市的大霈如癡如醉;大霈眼中的海洋,更是從小生長在蘭嶼的拿威未曾體驗過的宇宙觀,他們用彼此的眼看見了全新的世界,也讓拿威看見了自由深潛的未來與商機、給了他出走蘭嶼的契機。

躲在礁石後的人魚少女,是那場意外中真正救了拿威之人,她奮力的褪去尾鰭、與拿威再次的相遇。她有著純樸和潔淨的心,也有著如海洋般的溫暖和靜謐,當拿威與人魚少女悠遊在海底深潛,他感受到無比的自在與平靜,以及對故鄉濃濃的依戀。「來我的懷裡,當一條魚吧...」,他彷彿聽見了海洋的呼喚、聽見了少女的期待。

究竟該投入大海的擁抱,還是追求更大的夢想?這是「離開」與「留下」的選擇,也是「尋找」與「回歸」的選擇。這片讓人依戀的海,是道路的終點,給予蘭嶼得以保有純真與自然的屏障,還是奔向世界的起點?

 

導演的話:

你愛海嗎?心情不好時在海邊吶喊,在海邊大哭,在海邊散心,將壞心情留在大海,在離開大海時,帶著平靜的心回到城市裡,繼續忙碌著日復一日的一天,但城市的價值觀,與便利的生活方式,你是否知道你的便利已經破壞了抒發你心情的大海,因為便利製造出無止境的一次性塑膠垃圾,這些一次性塑膠垃圾,不是埋藏在看到不到的土壤裏,就是流入大海,而在這個同時。城市人的自傲,不了解與不尊重海洋民族在文化裡,對於大海的保護與付出,只當海島為度假的地方,這都是海人魚這部電影想講的,雖然用一個簡單的愛情故事來講,但希望看完的人,可以真正的愛大海,更愛自己居住的地方,少用一次性塑膠用品。
