WHY AM I SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS ??
Well, most of you don't know, obviously, but I have a personnal mental shrine to Tomm Moore, the realisator of Brendan and the Secret of Kells.
What ? you don't know Brendan and the Secret of Kells ???
AWESOME YOU HAVE SOMETHING GREAT TO LOOK FOR THEN
LOOK IT UP LOOK AT IT
I'm not even joking I want everybody to watch it.
Anyway, so, after this masterpiece that had my soul sold, we were left with nothing but a pilot for Song of the Sea, for yeaaaaars.
AND YESTERDAY I COULD FINALLY SEE IT IN THE CINEMA HAHAHAHA YES FINALLY SHUT UP TAKE MY MONEY.
So since I'm in Angoulême now and that town has a reputation to keep up, we could actually have an exclusive representation since the actual release date is apparently in december in France ? Well, I didn't check, I just saw the flyers and went like HOLY SCHMOOLY. Fun fact, at the cinema, there were maybe like 6 kids, and 200 animators students, hahahaha.
Sooo summaryyyy : Ben and Maïna are brother and sister living in a lighthouse with their father. Their mom was gone just after Maïna's birth and Ben is still angry at his sister for that. However, they will discover that, like her mom, Maïna is a selkie, the last one or so it seems. The magical creatures hope she'll sing for them and save them from the witch Macha. Problem is.... Maïna is mute.
IT WAS BEAUTIFUL. I GOT EMOTIONNAL. Saw some stuff I didn't like at parts, but details, very beautiful nonetheless. Like, wow. Like, you should watch it as soon as you can.
I would like to run my mouth forever about my undying love for these two movies, but you should really watch them yourself. So far I haven't had ONE person telling me they didn't enjoy them, so far so good !
fun fact : the guy sitting next to me started giggling when I sat down and asked me if I had dressed up in sailor theme for the movie. I had to double check my clothing to get his meaning. I just own so many sea themed stuff hahahahaha
