If one could feel a story…plumb its depths and utter small tokens of amazement at its beauty and truth, it might take the form of this lovely film. It’s context is clearly a tribute to rich Irish heritage. Color, the pure medium, acts as storyteller, relaying good versus evil as one would recount a dream. This film is artwork, enhanced and moving, with voices and life. The story arch reveals in classic hero journey – cave, reward, elixir evident. Music enchants audience, appealing to intensity of story climax, thrill of chase, and joy in rescue through irish folk songs and lullabies. See this for the color. See it for the story. Gasp at the glory of art which brings light!
PS. How can I resist the parallel of beauty bringing light, unity, freedom, and life to the ultimate beauty of Christ’s sacrifice! “Jesus said, I am the LIGHT of the world. Whoever follows me, will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
