THE SECRET OF KELLS is an animated feature set in ancient Ireland about a young boy who has to complete an extraordinary book of illuminations, with the help of a fairy.

Threat

There are various dream sequences that are somewhat dark and threatening, as is a scene in which wolves in the forest encircle and threaten the young hero and his cat. However, the scene is not prolonged and they are soon rescued by a fairy character. There is also a scene of violence in which Vikings attack a village. In this scene, the violence is quite stylised with plenty of red and black colours and sounds of sword slashing. We see women and children scared, as well as fires in the background. The young hero's uncle is shot by a flaming arrow, but there is no detail as we see it sticking out of his chest. He is also stabbed in the back with a sword, but this is entirely implied and we see no detail at all.
