Amphibian Man Человек-амфибия is a 1962 Soviet science fiction romance film starring Vladimir Korenev and Anastasiya Vertinskaya, and directed by Vladimir Chebotaryov and Gennadi Kazansky.

It is an almost fable-like story based upon the eponymous novel by Alexander Beliaev. It focuses on a youth named Ichthyander (from Greek: fish+man) who was surgically altered to survive under the sea. Unlike traditional science fiction movies of the time the film focuses much more on the concept of love won and lost. [x]
