I just recently watched Song of the Sea and I’ve got to say:
If you haven’t seen it or it’s sister Secret of Kells then you are missing out on something seriously different.
With it’s whimsical, almost Flannelgraphic, art style and calming Gaelic music, Song of the Sea takes the viewer along in the mystical world of Gaelic Fairies as a willful Ben discovers that his mute sister Seoirse is the sole hope for the Fairie Folk in Ireland. Though the story itself wasn’t that thought provoking to me in either movie, it was the way they painted the story with colorful characters that kept me gazing at my screen for the whole time.
I highly suggest this movie if you are looking for something different from the mainstream media.
