I've Heard the Mermaids Singing

Feature Film Canada 1987

A funny and moving story and one of the best Canadian films ever made. Polly, a delightfully naïve and 'organizationally impaired' temp, is hired by the prestigious Church Gallery, where she fells in love with her employer, charming Gabrielle, an authority in the artistic milieu. Polly is an enchanted voyeuse who looks at the world through the lenses of her camera; she doesn't resist the temptation to spy on her employer, and soon discovers her secrets: Gabrielle has a young lover, a girl who is a painter, and is herself an artist, but, convinced she has absolutely no talent, keeps her paintings hidden. Dazed by the beauty of her works and prompted by love, Polly decides to do what's in her power to make Gabrielle's artistic genius acknowledged. Her well-meaning but awkward moves set in motion a chain of events that will force Polly herself as well as Gabrielle to a reckoning with their inner self, and to ask themselves questions about thruth, art, love and beauty.
