The songs and the music is so magical it takes you so deep in the ocean and so high up the Irish highlands traditional stories.
The Oscar nomination was no foul, for me it is as good as Big Hero 6 but maybe the latter has more Action,, yet the storyline and plot here is tighter and more intriguing.
There were some Irish sentences where i'm lost .. couldn't get few words ;) :D but i lived for a while up in Glasgow, Scotland so i kinda got used to these mysteriously "charming" accents ;)
Don't keep your emotions sealed in jars :) It's been really so long since i'v watched an Animated movie with so much heightened emotions :) In the final scene i really felt like crying ...
Overall it's recommended , hope you enjoy it guys ;)
