2.5 out of 10 Not BAD but not good!
Nuala from Dublin, 23 Jun 2011
This film was like something a final year film student would make and they would have done a fine job ...however for a writer and director of the calibre of it Neil Jordan was a total disappointment. Unrealistic, sentimental, and way too fantastic for its own good. It is watchable and it will hold your interest but there have been way too many films like it before.

3 out of 10 Good, but could have been better!
Brian from Westmeath, 16 Jan 2011
Alicja Bachleda is fabulous and captivating in the central role and leaves Colin Farrell behind as the "star"of the film. The Film is lighter than most of Jordan's ventures and this is not his best picture. It's enjoyable and clever, but just lacks substance. You won't be wasting your time in watching it, but don't expect Jordan's usual impact.

3 out of 10 Watchable
Eamon from Meath, 07 Sep 2010
There was noting wrong with this movie, it was quite watchable and all of the characters are likeable enough. On the down side, it's a little slow and not very strong on the story side.

What's it about....
"Ondine" is the enchanting story of Syracuse, a lonely fisherman who one day pulls a beautiful woman named Ondine out of the sea in his nets. His young daughter Annie is convinced that she is a "selkie" - a creature from Irish folklore much like a mermaid. Syracuse has his doubts, but as Ondine brings some luck and joy to his otherwise downcast life, he starts to come around as well. "Ondine" deftly blends romance and fantasy with the realism of modern life in an Irish seaside...
