TorgoWhat an incredible, incredible animation style! A fusion of modern, sharp forms (like Cosmo & Wanda or Hercules) and medieval, mystic symbols with real stunning background paintings and shading overall. You really have to see this for its look alone. The soundtrack is also pleasing and adds to the unique, mature note of the film. Took me a while to see how it reminded me of Princess Mononoke, accidentally one of my all-time-favorites.
ChrisReynoldsThis film looks amazing, like a Celtic illumination come to life. At its best, the art and the score combine to produce moments that are achingly beautiful. Acting is very good, with actors doing very well with characters who are often quite uninteresting, Aisling excepted; she's amazing and there should have been more of her.
There are a lot of problems with the story, which jumps around a lot, and the pacing, which seems very off, I think because there are a lot of cuts all the time, even in scenes which should be slow, meaning that the moments which should be tense, calm, horrifying, or sad never get a chance to make an impact.
AissiThe story is charming, and the artwork is gorgeous. But it was the score that really did it for me.
TheBananaSo beautiful. Reminded me of Miyazaki.

sammysinDo yourself a favour and watch this in HD, it is staggeringly gorgeous.
I really hope more people get a chance to see this gem. It is very underrated and deserves to be loved by animation fans.
bouldermanA gothic looking fable which is fairly complex in the first act resolving somewhat simplistically in the final.
This was my final film to watch from those nominated for an academy award.. Alas the one I rated lowest
WindillBeautiful and strong.
The drawing is magnificent.
The animation is also excellent.
LaIsiThough the story wasn't a really exciting one, the topic it revolves around, medieval book illumination, is a really interesting one, taking in count how beautiful actual illuminated books are. It required the movie to be itself "illuminated". The animation is almost perfect, the colors, shapes, movements are gorgerous. I could watch it over and over just for how beautiful it is. The soundtrack is very good too, adds a lot to the visual part, and helps create an atmosphere. Not my favorite movie, but surely the most beautiful animation movie i have seen.
babblebuthBeautiful animation! Nice soundtrack. While I quite care for the story I would consider buying it for the artwork alone.
ZolduAn alltime favourite animation
Mudskipperanimation is so pleasing to the eyes!

Nintendude94I can't believe that such a low number of people on this site have seen this movie! It's absolutely beautiful! A bit short though.
