    I think I saw this film long ago because the beauty of Ireland sticks in my head. I’ll have to rent it again. Thank you for the reminder.

    I always wanted to see this movie and your post reminded me 🙂 I love Irish myths, especially those of the Selkie/sea people.

      In my YA series I’m planning on having one of my books deal with Selkie’s- they are a very fun myth.

    This looks wonderfully moving. How do you find these films? I have friends who just moved back to the states from Ireland, and now you post this. I think it’s a sign I should do some Ireland research. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this!

      I live near an indepedant video store and an indie movie teather close to the University- which means they have tons of foriegn films. And I’ve picked some pretty bad movies from time to time, but for the most part I’ve had good luck. Have fun researching- and don’t forget the music and movies!

    I love this movie. I bought a copy when the kids were younger. So cute.
    Thanks for bringing it to mind.

      Irish movies can be a lot of fun, but some of the adult movies have a lot of cussing- which can be shocking at first.

    Fellow foreign film fans? I watch at least one a week too.  A few weeks ago it was Jig, the Irish Jig Dancing Documentary, which I’m sure you’ll definitely enjoy if you enjoyed The Secret of Roan Inish. The most interesting foreign film I’ve seen recently is Bride Flight though. It’s a Dutch movie that hits the states this weekend. The L.A. Times describes it as “a sweeping historical drama wrapped around a tale of star crossed lovers.” I was happy they enjoyed it as much as I did. Take a look at the review http://lat.ms/kPoYcv I thought it’d be the perfect addition for next week Friday’s foreign film.
