Contents

Plot

Syracuse (Colin Farrell), called "Circus", is an Irish fisherman and former drunk, with a daughter named Annie, who is suffering kidney failure and uses a motorized wheelchair, and an ex-wife named Maura. One day, he finds a young woman (Alicja Bachleda-Curus) in his net, who he resuscitates. The woman is disoriented, but refuses hospitalization and doesn't want to be seen by people, so Syracuse takes her to his deceased mother’s house. Later, at dialysis, he tells Annie a story about a fisherman who pulled in his nets and discovered a woman. Annie believes the woman in the net is a Selkie or a mermaid.

Cast

Production

Filming began on July 18, 2008 on location on the Béara Peninsula in Ireland, and was scheduled to finish on August 6, 2008.[3]

Ondine had its European premiere as part of the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival on February 18, 2010 in Dublin, Ireland. The film was released in the United States on June 4, 2010 by Magnolia Pictures with a MPAA Rating of PG-13 for some violence, sensuality and brief strong language.

Reception

The film currently holds a 70% Fresh rating on Review Aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes based on 94 reviews.[4] Critics have praised the film for its atmospheric almost dreamlike quality[5] while some have criticized the ending.[6][7] Critics have also praised the performance of Alison Barry as Annie, with Mary Pols stating: "Barry is such a relaxed and strong performer that she manages to shrug off the burden of Annie's precociousness."[8]
