Quote:
"As in all feminist filmmaking, Rozema's theme and technique in Mermaids are inextricably bound because in cinema technique constitutes the signifying system. [...] Rozema's technique is to make conscious the mechanism of cinematic looking, while her theme is the legitimisation of one woman's way of looking."
-- George Godwin
