A feast for the eyes, and for the soul.

It shares with The Secret of Kells the basic concept of a young boy adventuring into the world of Celtic mythology, though here the backdrop is updated to the modern day. The film benefits from beautiful animation and design, blending simple animation techniques with CGI effects. With most animation being 3D CGI these days this gives a fresh feeling to the film, and continues the distinctive style used in The Secret of Kells. Where the film is less successful is the story: it takes a while to set up the main plot, and the quest narrative throws up encounters that aren't always engaging or particularly logical. It does all come to a reasonably satisfying conclusion and there is decent (though too obvious) use of the trope where the "real-world" events are parralleled by the fantasy narrative.

This is one of the best animation films I've ever seen. Great visuals, very nice soundtrack and also good plot. I strongly recommend it, it's something different from what we're being offered in the theatres nowadays. Too bad it didn't get the Oscar, but hey, I should really be used to the Academy style by now, doh.

Cartoon Saloon is now 2/2

They seem to be competing with Laika for being the next Pixar. Keep it up guys.

Clearly inspired by Miyazaki, this takes English-Language animation to realms yet to be explored.

Why isn't this in any genre lists yet? It's got enough votes and a high enough rating. Same goes for Wolf Children.

I loved it so much that I went to see it again when an opportunity arose; I don't think I have ever done that before. It was just as majestic the second time round. Perfection.

Wonderful. Its beauty, emotion and delight made me want to hug the screen throughout. My no.1 film of 2015.

Der's more to Oireland dan dis. Voice acting so over done that its reminds me of Dick Van Dykes ridiculous cockney nonsense.
Unoriginal style. Looks like a bog standard childs book.
Boring and overrated. To be sure to be sure.

An absolute gem of a film. Flawless animation and different but refreshing style. Great story once it properly starts and the songs are both memorable and fun.

Stunning. The raw emotion is shown through beautifully crafted artwork, the mythology wrapped around the themes so perfectly, and the characters were well-rounded enough to be believable and endearing.

Gorgeous reflection of grief and closure. Needs wayyy more recognition!
