The Secret of Kells

I wish I could draw like this, or like the monks who illustrated the Book of Kells.

This simple, yet magnificent movie introduces us to Brendan, a boy living in an Irish monastery when the Book of Kells was created. As Viking invasion is a major threat, his uncle, the abbot, focuses on building strong walls to keep the barbarians out. In contrast, an older monk and talented illustrator believes that completing “the book that turns darkness into light” should be their top priority.

Curious and innocent, Brendan gets caught up in this conflict and embarks on his hero’s  journey.

The power of this film lies in its intricate Celtic animation. Dazzling and mesmerizing, I’ve never seen anything like it.
