35mm Presentation - In the enchanting fantasy Ondine, Syracuse (Colin Farrell) is a simple fisherman who catches a beautiful and mysterious woman (Alicja Bachleda) in his trawler's nets. At first 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 (Alison Barry), he comes to believe that the fantastical might be possible and that the woman, Ondine, might be the manifestation of 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. Only after a terrible accident, and the return of a dark and violent figure from Ondine's past, is hope renewed and a new beginning presented to Syracuse, Ondine and Annie. Directed by Neil Jordan (The Good Thief, Michael Collins, The Crying Game).
