It's a film that leaves me very conflicted in that I wish there were more like it in theory and I love star Colin Farrell's recent career decisions, but a film cannot be judged on intentions and Ondine simply doesn't float.
Quite what Neil Jordan thought he was doing is hard to say, beyond hooking Farrell up with a mail-order ingénue and unveiling the least lustrous visuals ever composed by Chris Doyle who very possibly spent the shoot asleep in a puddle of Guinness.
