Song of the Sea (Irish: Amhrán na Mara) is a 2014 animated film that was directed and co-produced by Tomm Moore. It was an international co-production with animation studios in Ireland, Belgium, Denmark, France, and Luxembourg. It's the second movie that was made by Cartoon Saloon, following their first one, The Secret of Kells.


A 10-year-old Irish boy named Ben finds out that his silent younger sister, Saoirse, is a selkie who will have to free the faeries from the Celtic goddess, Macha. 

Why It Rocks

  1. The amazingly beautiful animation that is entirely hand-drawn. This style of animation is kinda hard to find in today's movies.
  2. A touching story about Irish mythology and folklore.
  3. Great and interesting characters such as the adorable Saoirse and the spunky Ben.
  4. Ben and Saorise's father, Connor seems to have similarities as Tim Lockwood from Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs. As their both likable, have a good heart and know what's best for their children
  5. Stellar writing that beautifully weaves in emotional themes with Irish folklore.
  6. The excellent and astonishing music by Bruno Coulais.
  7. The lighting is notably glowing.

Bad Qualities

  1. Connor's mother could be unlikable and mean spirited due to her strict personality.


The film was widely praised by critics and moviegoers alike and has a 99% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
