Goofs

When Granny finds the ghosts in the bin on Halloween, she threatens to call the police. Being Irish and living unmistakably in Dublin, she would not use the term police, but would instead threaten to call "the Guards" (or "Gardaí" in Irish), the usual term for police in Ireland. See more »

Song Of The Sea is a triumph of design and animation.
10 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

From the Academy Award-nominated director of The Secret of Kells "Tomm Moore"This visually stunning animation masterwork, steeped in Irish myth, folklore and legend,Perfect balance of fantasy & real life.

A sweet journey of love and loss through Celtic mythology with a unique animation style that I've come to love,Song Of The Sea is a triumph in design and animation,The story was rich and quite impressive as well but after you see this film you'll be thinking about how amazing and beautiful it was.

Song Of The Sea gets a 10/10 from me and is well worth to be seen in theaters.
