Hot mermaid lovin' in Colin Farrell's Ondine trailer

04.16.2010

I've been hearing good things about Colin Farrell's new mermaid movie, which is a phrase I never thought I'd write. It’s called ONDINE, and technically it's not a mermaid movie, as Alicja Bachleda is playing a different kind of sea creature that I can’t quite spell. A selkie maybe? That sounds right.

Anyway, Farrell finds her in the water one days, and discovers she has magical powers to sing to fish which lets him catch them and make cash. Over time Farrell falls for the fish girl and his wheelchair bound daughter bonds with her as well, but there’s trouble in paradise when her fish husband returns to take her back to the sea.

Yes, it does sound rather ridiculous, but from the trailer it looks pretty decent and filled with real emotion despite its similarities to SPLASH. Check it out below.

Extra Tidbit: Farrell and Bachleda are dating in real life, so that probably helps create some spark.

I do like Mermaids-the only really cool one that comes to mind was on an old 1960's episode of "Night Gallery".

ONDINE

They should have made Ondine an actual mermaid but then similarities to Splash would have been more apparent, still looks interesting.

I saw this at the toronto film festival and loved it. It has its flaws though and it'll likely draw the same kind of "warm but not great" reception Neil Jordan's other films have. The revelation of the film is Alison Barry who plays the daughter of Farrell's character. She is brilliant.

Looks like a genuinely interesting and engaging movie. And FINALLY it's about a mythical creature that isn't called "vampire".

Sounds interesting...

...and that's rare these days with all the flippin' reboots, etc. He's some stuff on Selkie's from Wikipedia:

"Selkies are able to become human by taking off their seal skins, and can return to seal form by putting it back on. Stories concerning selkies are generally romantic tragedies. Sometimes the human will not know that their lover is a selkie, and wakes to find them gone."

The dude's gonna be one of the best

Movie doesn't intrigue me but can't go wrong with Farrell and Jordan. I'll watch Colin in anything...watched Tigerland again the other night....no one else could play that role. Amazing it's been 10 years already. He's gonna go down as one of the best actor in history when it's all said and done, but I've always liked him...as I grew up Brad Pitt and Leo were the "heart throbs" and got on my nerves, but low and behold now they're part of today's generation of great actors. I'll watch Cruise and

I'll watch Cruise and Crowe in anything too...they may be our modern days Connery, Pacino, DeNiro.

Re. Justinvsky1

Agree; "In Bruges" is a great example.

Another actor with a complete turn around is "Leonardo Di Caprio", e.g. Shutter Island, Blood Diamond, The Departed, Gangs of New York etc.

Could be good. Since Hollywood stopped trying to sell him as the newest bad boy, he's come in to his own. I'll see it.

Two words: Neil Jordan

I've always liked his work; even Interview With the Vampire had its moments. Don't know where you're getting the Splash thing: that's like comparing The Dark Knight to Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

This looks pretty cool. Farrell has really turned it around career/film wise over the past few years to the point where I'm always looking forward to his next project where as I used to freaking hate the guy. He's proved to be a great actor in my opinion. Big fan.
