Ondine...



You are probably wondering why I keep changing my playlist. When the seasons change, my music tastes change. I prefer melodies with no words, usually from my favorite movies. Of course playlist doesn't offer many of the songs I would chose. Why the change this morning...well, last night I watched a movie I rented from redbox. I knew nothing about the movie and chose it just because of the ocean theme..and Colin Farrell. This movie was such a beautiful suprise...and did not disappoint this sea-lovin girl. The Irish seaside, sound of sea, lovely music, beautiful Ondine, eclectic clothing, country church, delight of a little girl...it was like being at the seashore. And to top it off the theme song 'Lille' is from my favorite C.D Lisa Hannigan's Sea Sew. Do you remember this song?



So for all of you who love the sea, mermaids, fairtales this is a movie for you! Here is the synopsis:

ONDINE is the story of Syracuse, a simple fisherman who catches a beautiful and mysterious woman in his trawler’s nets. The woman seems to be dead, but then she comes alive before Syracuse’s eyes and he thinks he may be seeing things. However, with the help of his ailing, yet irrepressible daughter, Annie, he comes to believe that the fantastical might be possible and that the woman (Ondine) might be a myth come true.

Ondine and Syracuse fall passionately in love, but just as we think the fairytale might go on forever, the real world intercedes. Then, after a terrible car crash and the return of a dark and violent figure from Ondine’s past, hope eventually prevails and a new beginning is presented to Syracuse, Ondine and Annie.

Has anyone seen this? What did you think? I couldn't help but think of the Sea witch, I think this is just her kind of movie. ox from the sea,
