      Enchanting

      A beautifully animated, well-told story, with great voice acting and a musical score to match. Some of the stories complexities maybe lost on the very young, but only to the point that it would feel like a fairy story. However, its that deep lore and saturation of symbolism that allow this to be appreciated by adults. I'm 34 years old, my g/f is 30, and we both loved it. At times, it felt almost like Studio Ghibli's story telling style (which is a good thing) but it definitely feels like its own thing, which is both fresh and unique. And can I just say that I LOVE the characterization, design, and animation of the main character Saoirse (the young girl). ADORABLE.

      I got this based on a few recommendations from people I trust and it left me absolutely speechless. Song of the Sea is meticulously crafted - every frame adds to the overall experience. Nothing is wasted or superfluous. I've only recently seen it but I can say with complete honesty that this is one of the finest animated films I've ever seen and easily ranks with the best of Pixar and Ghibli. It's as magical a film that can be made.

      Tomm Moore, who also created the magical Secret of Kells, has crafted another gem of a children's movie. This focuses on dealing with grief and loss in a way that does not talk down to children. Instead, it teaches to embrace all of our emotions. By building the story around the folklore of Ireland, Song of the Sea helps introduce rich storytelling that is not Grimm-centric.

      This is a beautiful movie. It's a very emotional subject of a children loosing their mother and the hardships a father must endure trying to raise and comfort his children and the emotions the children feel. My granddaughter loved this movie. Some children at an early age are faced with loosing a loved one, I highly recommend this movie for family night at the movies.

      This animated movie will appeal to those who loved Secret of the Kells that was released in 2010. The animation is the same style and strives to enchant all viewers. If you are familiar with the legends of the selkie, then you are half way there to knowing what to expect. It is a beautiful story of love, and belonging. A must see for all.

      A mythological animated film with good musical numbers lush backgrounds and wonderful characterization. Very long at times and mature themes will need parents explanation for some of the events that happen in it (for younger kids who might be watching) Artistic film with a unique take on an Irish fairy tale.

      If you were a fan of The Secret of Kells, then you owe it to yourself to pick up Tomm Moore's second feature. This is a beautiful film that reminds us how fresh and simple hand drawn animation can be. The story is a little light and silly, but it is rich in Irish myths and legends. It deserved its Best Animated Film nomination.

      Very creative and good family fun. Bring the family together and enjoy a " Story". In the sense of how stories were passed down from generation to generation, before the computer age. Have your family put away their cell phone and get together and watch a very creative and entertaining animated movie.
