This is a beautifully animated movie from Ireland. The art is so amazing you could turn the sound off and be completely captivated for the full length of the movie. But don’t do that because the story is a great one. I rarely give plot synopsis because I suck at them and it sounds all fake and stupid. I will say this movie makes me think, as I struggle to protect myself and my family for the dangers in life, am I forgetting any of the important things? Am I so caught up in my worries and fears that like the Abbot I have forgotten the beauty and joy in life I’m trying to protect?
The Secret of Kells has everything you want in a childrens/ family movie; a great story, fun characters, history, and a lesson without being preachy.
Okay this trailer highlights the more suspenseful parts of the movie, but there is also a lot of humor and fun.
So. Incredibly. Gorgeous. And a really different style of animation, too, though it reminds me a little of the Zelda Wind Waker game (which is also gorgeous, omg).
I’ve been lingering on this in Netflix for so, so long, but that preview really cemented for me that I truly do need to finally watch this film.
Yes, see it- it’s so beautiful! And it’s a great rich story.
Beautiful, old-school animation.
Yes, a lot of time and love went into making this movie.
Loved this and the music though I couldn’t figure out what they were saying. I’m assuming they were speaking English but with an Irish accent???
Thanks Patti- yes she does have a heavy accent and her voice is very whispy. You can turn on the subtitles if needed- sometimes the accents are difficult to understand.
What a great little gem of a film. Thanks for reminding me. I need to see it again.
You’re welcome Kilian- it is a beautiful movie.
How interesting. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll have to check it out. 🙂
I adore it- I hope you get a chance to watch it.
Ooooh, this has been on my Netflix queue for ages now! I’ll definitely watch it soon. 😀
Yes- it such a great film. I think you’ll like it, from the movies you’ve talked about on your blog we tend to enjoy the same ones.
