    Neil Jordan is a master in being able to describe the emotional depth of the human psychic. Ondine however managed to captivate me also for the beautiful cinematography, the mesmerizing score, the surprisingly depth of Colin Farrel's acting and the beautiful interwoven fairytale. Full Review »

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I found this movie a nice surprise. Is romantic and sweet. Is funny and inocent. And the little girl, Annie, stoled the show. She is a very good actress and almost made me cry. Watching Collin in his natural habitat, talking line an irish is priceless. And that girl is very pretty. The mom was a very bad influence, i expected the worst from here and i got it. And always thaught that the stepfather was a pervert, and turned our it was not. At the end a very nice surprise movie.
