Song of the Sea (2014)

2014 | Ireland | Tomm Moore | ★★★★★

Award-winning Irish film-maker Tomm Moore's gently affecting, decidedly lovely Song of the Sea is a beautifully drawn, exquisitely painted animated children's fantasy, packed with the fairies, giants, witches, and selkies of Celtic folklore.


"The enchanting Irish animation Song of the Sea tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse – the last Seal-child – who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. Nominated for Academy Award 'Best Animated Feature', the film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land." Studiocanal
