Colin Farrell and Alicja Bachleda at Tribeca for Ondine (photos)
In Neil Jordan’s beguiling mixture of small-town comedy, serious fantasy and thriller, Colin Farrell, one of the best screen actors around, brings his hangdog charm to bear on a sad divorced, alcoholic fisherman eking out a slim living in a corner of Ireland left unbitten by the Celtic Tiger economy. One day his usually empty net is filled by a beautiful dying girl (Alicja Bachleda), whom he brings back to port and falls in love with. Is she an illegal immigrant, a mermaid, or as Farrell’s smart, seriously ill 10-year-old daughter thinks, a selkie, a legendary creature that’s a seal in the water and assumes human form on land.
Below are some of my other shots . I only have two or three events left that I plan to attend before the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival ends Sunday, and then I can rest.
