Lu Over the Wall

Dir. Masaaki Yuasa Japan 107 min PG

2017 GKIDS Films

A hallucinogenic-but-family-friendly take on “The Little Mermaid,” a lonely sea dweller comes ashore to join a dysfunctional middle school rock band and propel them to fame

New kid Kai is talented but adrift, spending his days sulking and isolated in a small fishing village after his family moves from Tokyo. When he demonstrates a proficiency at making music on his synthesizer, his classmates invite him to join their nascent garage band, but their practice sessions soon bring an unexpected guest: Lu, a young mermaid whose fins turn to feet when she hears the beats, and whose singing causes humans to compulsively dance – whether they want to or not.
