Neil Jordan's Ondine (Magnolia Pictures, 06.04.10) was certainly one of the most interesting films that played at the Toronto Film Festival last September. It received modest reviews and wallowed around before picking up a distributor last month, but I'm glad to see it did.
Described as an "adult fairy-tale drama," the film chronicles a fisherman (Colin Farell) as he catches a mysterious woman in his nets who at first appears to be dead before magically springing to life.
This trailer doesn't really stir me one way or the other (besides the fact that I love that cloudy, breezy seaport setting) but it looks like it's coming from the right place. Certainly better than The Brave One, no?
