Chelovek-Amfibiya (1962)

Chelovek-Amfibiya (1962, RUS) C-96m. ** D: Vladimir Chebotaryov, Gennadi Kazansky. Starring Vladimir Korenev, Anastasiya Vertinskaya, Mikhail Kozakov. The Russian answer to Jack Arnold's CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (1954) is lightweight tale of an amphibian man, who goes ashore (as a handsome man) to woo the woman he has fallen in love with. However, she has promised to marry a brute. Good camerawork is main attraction in this romantic movie, but pace and plotting are just second-rate. Still worth a look, based on a novel by Aleksandr Belyayev. English title: THE AMPHIBIAN MAN.
