The Secret of Kells

Hand-drawn animation doesn’t appear nearly often enough for my liking. But the few recent hand-drawn films have done unique and bold things with the genre. There’s Studio Ghibli, who continually produces smart, adult-orientated features, and foreign films like Peresepolis and The Secret of Kells which expand the look and language of the medium.

The Secret of Kells, with its bold... read more

Description: The Book of Kells is an exquisitely illustrated Irish manuscript containing the Four Gospels, a fragment of Hebrew names, and the Eusebian canons. It is sometimes called The Book of Columbia, because it was created some time at the end of the seventh or beginning of the eighth century in the monastery of Iona to honor the saint. It is written in black, red, purple, and yellow ink and the writing and the illumination of the manuscript is thought to be the work of two monks. The ornaments of the text include closely coiled spirals, ribbons knotted together, and imaginative depiction of human beings, animals, horses, dogs, and fanc ... (more)

"Re-watch - April 4th It's been even longer since I last watched The Secret of Kells, and since the kiddo hadn't seen it I felt it was time to finally fix that. It's a solid film, but I still say they improved greatly on all aspects with Song of the Sea. My daughter enjoyed it about as much as I did I think, and she asked about other films from the same animation studio. She's not ready for The Breadwinner yet, but it looks like they have 2 films scheduled to come out in the next couple of years"

" This kept popping up on all the websites where they recommend something for you, so I decided to see what was up. It was really good, but more in a non-animated way? Let me see...the animation was spectacular and creative, but the story felt like a live-action one? It's hard to explain. It was absolutely original, magical and poignant."

"First viewing - March 8th Recommended by Ricky49er This has been sitting in my queue about as long as I've had one, but for whatever reason (mood mostly) I kept putting it off. Thanks are due then to Ricky49er for recommending it for our project so I finally had proper motivation to get it watched. Now if only someone would recommend about 100 more of what's in my queue...heh. First off, the artwork & animation here is just stellar. It's a good thing the plot is kept pretty simple, because oth"

Netflix Movie Stream Awards 2014 (17 movies items)

"LAST MOVIE WATCHED OF 2014 (Number 89) This is just an absolutely beautiful film and is just full of charm that many mainstream animated films can't emulate. The story feels like an old legend that was passed down from generations being brought to life in the most visually-satisfying way. The characters are interesting and believable but special mention goes to Aisling whom really steals the movie."
