    Ondine

    A big catch

    "I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

    I do not think that they will sing to me.

    I have seen them riding seaward on the waves

    Combing the white hair of the waves blown back

    When the wind blows the water white and black.

    We have lingered in the chambers of the sea

    By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown

    Till human voices wake us, and we drown."

    The Town

    It's worth visiting.

    In director/star Ben Affleck's The Town, there are too many rounds of assault rifles and too much mumbling among the hardened criminals of Charlestown, Mass., where he grew up. But then there's much to like?the occasional joke and the infrequent but authentic romantic moments as well as realistic ones between old friends who are deeply involved in heists.
