On the coast of Cork, Syracuse is a divorced fisherman who has stopped drinking. His precocious daughter Annie has failing kidneys. One day, he finds a nearly-drowned young woman in his net; she calls herself Ondine and wants no one to see her. He puts her up in an isolated cottage that was his mother's. Annie discovers Ondine's presence and believes she is a selkie, a seal that turns human while on land. Syracuse is afraid to hope again.

Ondine is an Excellent Movie
I have watched just about every movie you can think off. Ondine is one of the best I have ever watched. The characters are intriguing and complex, the mystery of the silk leaves it all to the imagination. Simply marvelous acting from Colin Farrell and The beautiful and stunning Alicja Bachleda and great cast of supporting actors. 10/10 cinema photography and script is masterfully written. Ondine should have won an Academy Award. I think this movie shows the diversity of the role that Colin Farrell can perform. I was still thinking about Miami Vice for the first five minutes of the film but then his accent and role was flawless. Well done mate top performance and why wouldn't you accept the role with Alicja who holds the screen in her own right and she made the water look like she belonged there!
