[CFF 2020] ‘La Sirena’ Review: Sweet story about possibilities

La Sirena is an imaginative short film that can be viewed by the entire family

La Sirena is a short film about a ten-year old boy on a quest to find a mermaid. Speed, played by Max Havens gets some help after he wrecks his car in a small town populated with roughly six hundred citizens. La Sirena is a story about imagination and determination, but also about magic. Directed by Matteo Servente and written by Melissa Anderson Sweazy, La Sirena is film about finding friends who believe in you.

Beth Grant (The Mindy Project, Donnie Darko) and John Diel (Miami Vice and Stargate) join forces to help a seemingly helpless little boy. They soon learn the boy is far from helpless and is not running away to prove any kind of point. Speed (Havens) lucks into the kindliness and friendship of Penny the police dispatcher (Grant) and Nino, a barber (Diel). Havens, Grant, and Diel give strong performances as they weave their way through Max’s backstory and mission. The rural setting adds to the magical nature of their encounter that makes the impossible seem possible.
