Movie Reviews

  • You'll need a soft spot for this kind of whimsy, and mine sadly is like reinforced concrete
    2 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [Guardian ]
  • Though the ending feels tacked on, there's imagination here as well as style
    3 of 5 by Derek Malcolm [This is London ]
  • there is enough saving grace on these craggy shores to let the mists and the legends roll in and envelop you for a while
    3 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times ]
  • strikingly suggestive
    3 of 4 by Ed Gonzalez [Slant Magazine ]
  • Ondine looks heavy and it ends up feeling a little slight, but between those two extremes there's a beguiling siren song of a movie about the way the unexpected has a way of intruding on even the most fatalistic lives
    Review rate : B by Keith Phipps [A.V. Club ]
  • Ondine is ultimately more a flawed exercise in storytelling than an honest-to-God failure
    2.5 of 5 by Chris Cabin [http://www.filmcritic.com/reviews/2009/ondine/ ]
  • Ondine effectively sustains a mood of a hazy melancholy most affecting when nothing much is happening
    by Karina Longworth [Village Voice ]
  • If only the film had stuck with its fairy-tale story. Instead, the final 30 minutes turn into a bloody thriller with a tacked-on happy ending
    2 of 4 by V.A. Musetto [NY Post ]
  • Funny, whimsical and as warming as a big bowl of Irish stew
    3 of 5 by David Hughes [Empire Magazine ]
  • a pure delight and resonant beyond its slight contours
    4 of 5 by Pam Grady [Boxoffice Magazine ]
  • A lyrical, if slight, breeze of an Irish fable
    by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • A fairy tale mashed up against the jagged unpleasantries of the modern world
    by Todd McCarthy [Variety ]
  • Reviewed by Manohla Dargis [NY Times ]
