Part of Portland Mermaid Week!
"Understated in its subversion of, and then canny adherence to, its chosen folklore." -Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Some complexities of story will be lost on audiences not tuned to the regional Irish brogue that is the mother tongue of this little fishing community. But Christopher Doyle's dark lush photography plucks the green coast of Cork like a harp." -Jonathan F. Richards, Film.com
"It's impossibly romantic; Farrell and real-life partner Bachleda exude a tamped-down longing that intensifies as the movie draws to its conclusion." -Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"Ondine is dipped in whimsy and might have drifted out to sea, but it's bounded on four sides by love stories - between a father and a daughter, a man and a mermaid, an actor and his co-star, and a director and his country." -Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
An Irish fisherman discovers a woman in his fishing net whom his precocious daughter believes to be a selkie.
Written and directed by Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with a Vampire) with cinematography by Christopher Doyle (Chungking Express, In the Mood for Love).
