  1. Really nice to see the enthusiasm for Ondine. A new Jordan film is always worth nothing, though it's been the better part of a decade since a film of his has really struck me. Everything I've read about this one sounds promising, though, and its premise sounds reminiscent of Sayles' wonderful The Secret of Roan Inish. And of course with Chris Doyle shooting the picture, one naturally comes in with a certain expectation of visual greatness.

  3. I knew what you meant. I don't think it's as good as Sayle's ROAN INSIH, one of my personal favs of 1995 http://refinedpictureshow.blogspot.com/2008/12/1995-at-24fps.html, but it is a really charming Irish folktale. If you like Neil Jordan you definitely shouldn't miss it
