Indie Trailer Sunday: First Trailer for Ondine with Colin Farrell
Okay, bear with me, even if you don't like Colin Farrell, I still suggest checking out this trailer for Neil Jordan's Ondine. I actually saw this film at the Toronto Film Festival late last year and quite enjoyed it (although I never wrote a review). This trailer makes it seem way more epic than it actually is, but that said, the film itself is very sweet and charming and kind of a breath of fresh air to watch (especially after watching depressing films). Don't worry, it doesn't turn into a horror/thriller at the end (like this trailer implies), but it's a great film. The Playlist first found this on YouTube last week so I owe them thanks. Watch and enjoy!
Watch the first unofficial trailer for Neil Jordan's Ondine:
Written and directed by Neil Jordan (of The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire, The Brave One), Ondine is a lyrical modern fairy tale that tells the story of Syracuse (Colin Farrell), an Irish fisherman whose life is transformed when he catches a beautiful and mysterious woman (Alicja Bachleda) in his nets. His daughter Annie comes to believe that the woman is a magical creature, while Syracuse falls helplessly in love. However, like all fairy tales, enchantment and darkness go hand in hand. A story of love, hope and the unwavering belief in the impossible. Magnolia is distributing in the US but hasn't set a release date yet.
