Story


ONDINE is the story of Syracuse, a simple fisherman who catches a beautiful and mysterious woman in his trawler's nets. The woman seems to be dead, but then she comes alive before Syracuse's eyes and he thinks he may be seeing things. However, with the help of his ailing, yet irrepressible daughter, Annie, he comes to believe that the fantastical might be possible and that the woman (Ondine) might be a myth come true. Ondine and Syracuse fall passionately in love, but just as we think the fairytale might go on forever, the real world intercedes. Then, after a terrible car crash and the return of a dark and violent figure from Ondine's past, hope eventually prevails and a new beginning is presented to Syracuse, Ondine and Annie.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Ondine is ultimately more a flawed exercise in storytelling than an honest-to-God failure..”
by Chris Cabin [http://www.filmcritic.com/reviews/2009/ondine/]
“..there is enough saving grace on these craggy shores to let the mists and the legends roll in and envelop you for a while..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
“..Funny, whimsical and as warming as a big bowl of Irish stew..”
by David Hughes [Empire Magazine]
