Family Movie Night: Song of the Sea

This week on my family movie night video I put another plug for you all to see Song of the Sea.

I can’t say enough good things about this film.  It’s still the best movie I’ve seen all year including Inside Out.  In my opinion Song of the Sea is a true new masterpiece and I love it more each time I see it.  It’s emotional, peaceful, tense, sweet, scary and everything else.  The journey that Ben takes in dealing with the loss of his Mother is engrossing and devastating at times.  There is magic and unexpected characters and the animation is stunning.

Please watch it!!!  It is available as a free stream if you are an amazon prime member.

Have you seen it?  What did you think?

The music by Bruno Calais and Kila is so moving as well.  I have the soundtrack and enjoy listening to it throughout the day.  It has a calming effect over me.

What would you say is a new masterpiece released in the last 3 or 4 years.  I would put last year’s Boyhood in that discussion and Inside Out would be on the short list.

  1. From what I remember about my feelings when watching this was that I feel the film is more beautiful-looking than it is good or rewatchable. I do love the brother/sister relationship though; we don’t see a lot of that in Western films.

    1. I just want to encourage people to see it because I think outside of animation fandom it still isnt that well known and to me it was a masterpiece. It really spoke to me
