Story


"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. The film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]
“.."Song of the Sea" is differentiated not only by its rich visual design - grayer and more subdued than "The Secret of Kells," yet still a marvel to behold - but also by its ethereal musical dimension..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..it plays heavily on traditionalism, on tales we were all told when young, now coming to life, arousing the blissful nature in all of us..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]
