“Ondine” Movie Review



Syracuse (Colin Farrell) is a hardworking fisherman recovering from addiction while helping his ex-wife support their young daughter, who happens to be wheelchair-bound with kidney failure, Annie (Alison Barry).

One day while trolling with his nets, Syracuse finds a woman entangled in the nets! Yikes!

Ondine (Alicja Bachleda) is barely alive but, Syracuse revives her then lets her live in his late mother’s cabin.

Ondine does not deny that she may be a selkie and……

Oh, to see what happens, you can watch the movie on Amazon Prime.

“Ondine” is a fantasy drama that is super fun to watch, if a bit hard to understand Colin Farrell. The cast is terrific and the plot had us believing in selkies……and we still do. 🙂
