Great interpretation of the history of the origins of what some consider Ireland's greatest National Treasure. Good music and beautiful animation is the work of many dedicated artists From all over the world based on the credits.

One of the most beautiful films I have ever seen! I had to go visit the Book of Kells after seeing this film! The animation is pure art and joy.
