Aro Recommended Secret of Kells, The


Ireland 2008, 75 minutes
Dir. Tomm Moore
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Family / Animation

Topics: Fairytale, Period - Middle Ages.


Aroview: Sparkling Celtic fable based on the ninth-century Irish historical text, The Book of Kells, follows a young monk whose artistic creativity eventually leads to the completion of the legendary tome.

Slightly confounding mythology aside, children and adults alike will delight in the film’s eye-popping animation (hand-drawn, and all the better for it) and uniquely whimsical, medieval
setting. An out-of-ordinary treat from the producers of the equally splendid KIRIKOU AND THE SORCERESS.
