A triumph of design and animation, populating lavishly detailed, patterned backdrops with characters so simplified that they could've been cut-and-pasted from a newspaper comic strip.

A wonder to behold. This visually stunning animation masterwork, steeped in Irish myth, folklore and legend, so adroitly mixes the magical and the everyday that to watch it is to be wholly immersed in an enchanted world.

Visually, this is an exquisitely composed film, and it teems with curiosities and compassion. If on occasion the story seems to wander, it arrives at an enchanting destination.
