In a giant dump where even monuments are melted down, a worker hears singing from a decommissioned cruise ship. Do not go investigating, lest you become dinner for an evil mermaid.

Ulysse is an award-winning short from 2013, directed by Hugo Bodoukian Meyrant, Martin Chabannes, Anne Labadie and Candice Theuillon. It features a siren that looks like Ursula’s sister. And reminds all of us that overly-complicated plans for killing are doomed to failure.
