What’s this? Colin Farrel playing an Oirish man? Hurrah!
Apparently this is a lyrical modern fairy tale that tells the story of Syracuse (Farrell), an Irish fisherman whose life is transformed when he catches a beautiful and mysterious woman (Alicja Bachleda) in his nets.
His daughter Annie (Alison Barry) comes to believe that the woman is a magical creature, while Syracuse falls helplessly in love. However, like all fairy tales, enchantment and darkness go hand in hand.
Written and directed by Neil Jordan -and shot against the Irish coast’s magical backdrop by cinematographer Christopher Doyle – ONDINE is a story of love, hope and the unwavering belief in the impossible.
It is released on March 5.
