* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: All in one character, no less. Story's hair is black the first time we get a glimpse of her, red from then on and most of the film, and blonde from the climax onward.

Creator/MNightShyamalan writes, directs, and acts in this self-proclaimed, “grown-up bedtime story” about a UsefulNotes/{{Philadelphia}} apartment building superintendent named Cleveland (Creator/PaulGiamatti) who discovers a magical sea nymph named Story (Creator/BryceDallasHoward) who’s been transported to this world and is living in the building’s own swimming pool.

As this bizarre revelation sinks in, Cleveland becomes enraptured by her otherworldly charm. As he shelters her in his apartment, other inhabitants of the building begin falling into place as representations of characters from an Eastern myth in which these mermaids, or “narfs,” coexist unhappily with more beastly and violent characters.

-->“Once, Man and those in the water were linked. They inspired us. They spoke of the future. Man listened and it became real. But Man does not listen very well. Man’s need to own everything led him deeper into land. The magic world of the ones that lived in the ocean … and the world of men … separated. Through the centuries, their world and all the inhabitants of it … stopped trying. The world of Man became more violent. War upon war played out, as there were no guides to listen to. Now those in the water are trying again … trying to reach us. A handful of their precious young ones have been sent into the world of Man. They are brought in the dead of night … to where Man lives. They need only be glimpsed … and the awakening of Man will happen. But their enemies roam the land. There are laws that are meant to keep the young ones safe … but they are sent at great risk to their lives. Many … do not return. Yet still they try … try to help Man. But Man has forgotten how to listen…”

[[caption-width-right:270:Time is running out for a happy ending.]]

Creator/MNightShyamalan writes, directs, and acts in this self-proclaimed, grown-up "bedtime story" about an apartment building superintendent named Cleveland (Paul Giamatti) who discovers a magical sea-nymph named Story (Bryce Dallas Howard) who's been transported to this world and is living in the building's own swimming pool.

As he shelters her in his apartment, other inhabitants of the building begin falling into place as representations of characters from an Eastern myth in which these mermaids, or "narfs," co-exist unhappily with more beastly and violent characters.

In human reality, the forces of darkness that threaten the heroes of a fairy tale prove to be much more terrifying, and the victory of good over evil is by no means guaranteed. Jeffery Wright, Jared Harris and Mary Beth Hurt co-star, as well as Shyamalan himself, playing [[AuthorAvatar the visionary writer Vick]].
