Official poster for Neil Jordan’s ONDINE

In Neil Jordan’s latest, a water sprite changes the human world she lands in. The titular Ondine is played by Polish actress Alicja Bachleda, whose previous work has included primarily German and Polish films. Colin Farrell plays the fisherman Syracuse. When Syracuse captures the mysterious Ondine in his net, he believes her dead, until she seems to come to life right before his eyes. Can a woman who may be just a myth change a man's life?

For more information on the film, swim on over to the special spotlight piece I did on it in advance of its premiere at last year's Toronto Film Festival HERE. The official trailer for the film will be released next week. Hit the jump to check out the full poster!

I've long been intrigued by this project, and the poster's tagline ("The truth is not what you know. It's what you believe.") is only reeling me in further (intentional pun).

ONDINE premieres on VOD, XBOX, and Amazon.com on May 7 and opens in theaters June 4.
