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 »

User Reviews

 
A wonderful animation and People Should be aware of it.
30 March 2019 | by ebrahim_karamSee all my reviews

Tomm Moore is an animation genius. This movie isn't just beautifully done. It's a wonderful backbone of a story that shows innocence and grief. It sheds light on taking in your emotions instead of heading them away. The story has a plot but with no true villains only people with misunderstood intentions.

Song of the Sea is a masterpiece. I only wish more people knew of it.
