Christian Science Monitor - Peter Rainer
This movie is a one-of-a-kind experience – blarney carried to rhapsodic heights.
Movieline - Stephanie Zacharek
Ondine suggests that coincidence and magic are often the same thing.
Boxoffice Magazine - Pam Grady
Ondine is Injected with a heavy dose of magic and has a lot going for it: an endearing performance from star Colin Farrell, Christopher Doyle's evocative cinematography and a captivating-if thin-story.
NPR - Ella Taylor
Ondine plumbs the country's most resonant fairy tale and plays impishly along the borders of postcard fantasies of Ireland.
Miami Herald - Connie Ogle
Mostly, though, Ondine deftly demonstrates just how far we'll reach for any promise of relief from life's hardships, in whatever form -- magic or plain dumb luck -- it arrives.
