The Secret Of Kells (2009)

this is a beautiful cartoon from France and Ireland that I feel like I should like more than I actually do. 

it's not bad, but lacks a real villain.  unnamed Viking hordes and Crom Cruach don't quite cut it for the conflict department.  there's a lot of talking heads.

but it looks wonderful and is well acted and the music is good.  it just didn't reach out and grab me like I thought it might.  but if you are looking for something different than the usual disney/pixar looking movies, this is well worth a look.
