This film is a fairytale for grown-ups and is one of the most enchanting movies I've ever seen. It's a story that draws on the ancient myth of the Selkies, something I'd never heard about. If you are expecting Colin Farrel to portray another cocky overgrown adolescent with a chip on his shoulder his character is quite different. He plays a thoughtful, loving, divorced father working as a fisherman battling his way through life. The only light in his life is his young precocious daughter who is slowly dying from kidney failure. The stage is set for a woman who enters their lives in a surprising fashion and infuses their lives with her own peculiar form of what appears to be magic. The director has your mind moving one way but you'll be surprised when you discover where it ends. Before this movie I had never heard of Lisa Hannigan but was mesmermized by the closing song she sings called "Braille".

Watch this movie and you can see why it is frequently said that fairy-tales endure over the centuries because they all have a grain of truth in them.

A Irish fisherman (Colin Farrell) draws in his net and instead of fish has caught and young lady (Ondine). He starts catching more fish and decides she is good luck. He turns this into a story to tell his Daughter while she gets dialysis. His Daughter thinks Ondine is a sea creature. There is mystery about Ondine but still their lives become entwined. They live in a small community where it is hard to keep a secret. The local Priest has to hear confessions and sometimes AA meeting sponsor. Collin Farrell speaks in a heavy Irish accent but amazingly his Daughter does not. Genuine and good performance by Colin Farrell.
