Ondine is the story of Syracuse, a 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. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: In Ondine, a film about a fisherman and a mythical sea creature, Neil Jordan shows his fondness for fantasy worlds.
Fresh: Women tend to hide secrets in the original scripts of filmmaker Neil Jordan.
Fresh: There is enough saving grace on these craggy shores to let the mists and the legends roll in and envelop you for a while.
Rotten: If this movie were a human being, it would be intelligent and sincere but so depressed as to be unable to get out of bed without a forklift.
***** - five stars on this one - fantasy romance, beautiful photography, a refreshing escape. Downside? I want someone from the Apple Store to explain why the volume on my iPhone can't be turned up loud enough to hear the movie on an airplane. I couldn't watch this movie on my iPhone so had to rent it twice and watch it on my computer. What is the deal with this Apple Tech People?
