Neil Jordan’s last film was presented for the worldwide premiere last year at the Toronto International Film Festival and at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. In Italy it has been released only on dvd, therefore the screening at the Irish Film Festa will be the first time and a unique occasion to see this movie on the big screen.
The story evolves around Syracuse, a fisherman living in the south-west of Ireland. He is a solitary man, separated from his wife and his young daughter Annie, who is confined to a wheelchair. However his life will change radically after meeting Ondine, a beautiful girl with mysterious origins, who has been caught in his fish net.
Starring Colin Farrell alongside the Polish singer (with Mexican descent) Alicja Bachleda – who embodies Ondine – and Stephen Rea.
