the Secret of Kells

I was disappointed; Sam didn’t enjoy The Sectret of Kells

To me The Secret of Kells seemed like a beautiful film. Visually it’s amazing.

And the story too – this idea of – the vikings are coming – preserving something precious, sophisicated, beautiful, creative.

Wikipedia provides a breif summary of it:

The story is set in the 9th century. Twelve-year-old Brendan is educated by his uncle, Abbot Cellach, who holds a firm grip on his nephew and expects him to follow in his footsteps. One day, Brendan meets Brother Aidan, a master illustrator who shows him the beauty of art and stimulates his creativity and fantasy. Finally, Brendan decides to break free in search of his dream: completing the valuable Book of Kells. On his journey through the forest, he has to face his biggest fears.

And here’s a sample:
