After the disappearance of her mother when she was a baby, 4-year old Saoirse, who lives on a small island with her father and older brother Ben, discovers a magical coat that turns her into a seal-like creature called a Selkie. Having spent the night swimming with the seals, Saoirse is found washed up on the shore by her Granny who decides she and Ben would be safer living in the city. One Halloween night, longing to return home, Saoirse awakens some Faerie creatures, leading the two children on a weird and wonderful journey back home. Beautifully drawn with a bewitching soundtrack, this is an enchanting feast for the eyes and a heart-felt celebration of traditional Gaelic storytelling and folktales.

    The movie song of the sea is a really good movie in my opinion. I think that this movie would be for both gender. Its suitable for 5-12 years old. In my opinion I think little kids and older kids would enjoy this movie. and I think that this movie has good music and it has a good set up. I think the movie is very creative in describing the sea animals.

    Song of the Sea;
    Very good animated movie with thrilling scenes to watch & enjoy, I personally enjoyed it very much to my hearts content. I recommend this movie to older children for these following reasons:
    1).The story is not as clear as to for younger audiences, as to there's no exact plot explained properly, which is quite hard for them to understand.
    2).It was awkward at times as it is very cliché and very cute.
    3).Lastly, in my opinion at least, it is quite humorous with scenes with sad moments which isn't funny at all: and that's why I don't recommend this movie to younger viewers.

    In general, it is a highly-recommended movie that anyone can sit down at enjoy, it is a PG movie for children after all, so don't expect too much in the music and animation (Even though it is amazingly good).

    The start of the film was good and it got better while the film went on. I think it would be suitable for boys and girls aged 4 to 7 because they might enjoy it more than older kids. I gave it 3 stars because it would not be a film I would watch. I found it interesting and it kept my attention to the end. It was not dull and it was not boring it was a very good film so watch it.
