The story takes place in post WWII where people's way of life change. Fiona (Jeni Courtney) a 10 year old Irish girl, who recently lost her mother, goes to live with her grandparents for a better way of life. There she hears many tales of the history of her family and her missing brother.

John Sayles wrote the screenplay. The story is based on a children's book by Rosalie K. Fry. They try to stick to the simplistic telling of a child's story, yet do have to do a little manipulating and adding extra characters to make the story work on film.

There is no CGI; however there are trained sea lions and Animatronics. There are great visuals and excellent back ground music that does not overwhelm the dialog.

Be sure to get the DVD with the voice over commentary as it adds greatly to the experience.

If you happen to be a tad older than the target audience you may also appreciate " The Edge of the World" (1937) written and directed by Michael Powell.

The Secret of Roan Inish est un moment de pure émotion
il nous transporte dans un univers magique tant par la beauté de ses images et de son histoire que par ses musiques irlandaises ensorceleuses.
Un véritable coup de coeur.

I liked John Sayles' "Lone Star" so much that I systematically began working my way through his other films. "The Secret of Roan Inish" stopped me dead in my tracks. A film like no other, haunting in its beauty, it has stayed with me ever since. It is a great film, creative and beautiful. Jeni Courtney, the child star is a delight, a refreshing breath of youth and honesty who puts her Hollywood counterparts to shame.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 splendid old-fashioned movie experience 1 octobre 2002
Par Orrin C. Judd - Publié sur
Format: DVD
Given his notorious reputation for cranking out the most politically-correct of films, it's a really pleasant surprise to watch this profoundly conservative effort by John Sayles. Based on a 1959 novel by Rosalie Fry, Secret of the Ron Mor Skerry, Sayles' Roan Inish tells the story of a young girl, Fiona, who when her mother dies is sent to live with her grandparents on the Irish coast in the years immediately after WWII. The family had long lived on the island of Roan Inish, in the company of seals, but they were relocated to Donegal during the war and now may have to move again, further inland. There's an ineffable sadness about the old couple, the grandfather especially misses the island and mourns the lost way of life they enjoyed; the grandmother misses Fiona's brother, Jamie, who was swept out to sea in a wooden cradle when they were moving off of Roan Inish. Fiona though is convinced that her baby brother still lives and, indeed, her cousin Eamon tells her that he's been sighted sailing around in his cradle boat.
Fiona's grandfather and cousins are only too happy to tell her tales about the family and Roan Inish, maintaining their strong ties to the island at least in memory and recitation. Finally, one cousin, Tadhg--a "dark one" (dark of hair and eye like her brother was)--tells the story of how an ancestor captured a selkie, a seal-woman. The selkies are said to swim ashore in seal form and then strip off their skins to bask in the sun as beautiful women, but if you can grab their skin before they slip away they are bound to you. The family then is descended from this selkie, though one of her children eventually told her where to find the skin and she immediately swam off.
Fiona takes to visiting the island and spots Jamie herself, running naked and picking flowers, but he runs away and sails off in his cradle. She then convinces Eamon that the seals are keeping Jamie to make the family move back to the island, so the two set about secretly restoring the dilapidated huts and gardens, all the while trying to figure out how to coax the grandparents back to Roan Inish.
The film is beautifully shot, by Haskell Wexler, with a lilting Celtic soundtrack, and the cast, apparently professional but largely unknown here in the States, plays it straight down the line, as drama not fantasy. Mr. Sayles never treats the audience as if we need convincing, nor stoops to treat the material ironically. It is simply assumed that we will abandon reason and suspend disbelief, and we're quite happy to do so. The whole is infused with a sentimental longing for tradition, a sense that life has a proper order and we our proper places in that order, and a disdain for change that is positively reactionary and very refreshing. The viewer has no doubt that it is necessary for the Coneelly family, the descendants of the selkie, to live on Roan Inish and that the world is a better place with this balance restored. It's all as anti-modern as can be and makes for a splendid old-fashioned movie experience, for the whole family or just for the adults.

A beautiful story, that captures the selkie legend with a touch of innocence.

John Sayles adapted Rosalie Fry's 1959 novel: Secret of the Ron Mor Skerry (That now sells for three to five hundred dollars!) Haskell Wexler captured the rolling emerald pastureland, clusters of white thatched cottages and the mist rolling in from the sea on film so delightfully, you will find yourself longing to visit Ireland.

Green is the color of life, hope and joy. In this delightful story, Fiona is full of life, hopes to find her brother and experiences the joy of helping her family in their time of need.

Fiona (Jeni Courtney) loses her mother and younger brother and is sent to live with her grandparents on the Irish Coast. From the cottage she sees Roan Inish, an island where her family once lived. Filled with curiosity, she seeks every opportunity to explore the tiny island. Tales of seals that can change out of their skin and take on a perfect human form makes her even more curious. She feels a magical connection with one of the seals she sees while on a fishing boat.

The selkie in this story is a beautiful woman who marries a mortal, yet pines for the sea. She is trapped on land without her seal skin, which her husband has hidden. Ledgend has it that one of her children told her where the skin was hidden and she immediately put it on and returned to the sea, leaving her family, home and husband behind forever.

Fiona takes all the stories and finds she is experiencing some of the magic of the legend in her own trips to the Island of Roan Inish. Like all children, she still believes in magic and even though her grandparents don't believe she has seen her brother, Fiona has
faith that she has not seen a ghost.

A lovely story to teach children kindness to animals and that no matter what happens in life, someone is always looking out for them.

This is a rare treat!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fairy Tale for All Ages 1 août 2000
Par Laurie Gold - Publié sur

John Sayles hit one out of the park with his The Secret of Roan Inish. This one is clearly for the child in all of us, whether we're 8, 18, or 80. This magical story reunites a family on a small Irish island with little more than a young girl's dream and some hard work by she and her cousin.
The lure of Ireland is hardly new, but the beauty of this sometimes difficult land shines through the foggy mist that permeates the film. It is the financial hardships the Irish have often faced that create the backdrop for this movie. Some may say Sayles has romanticized penury, when in reality he has simply shown what is most important to the human spirit - that hard work can sometimes make dreams come true, and that faith and magic are as important as tangible things. The delightful acting and strong characterizations bring the moody and mystical Irish coast to life.
Whether you are a fan of the selkie myth, Ireland, or are looking for a film that you, your children, and your parents can watch together, I heartily recommend this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally! A really good Irish myth and legend brought to life 26 juillet 2003
Par Irish Lassie - Publié sur
Format: DVD
The Secret of Roan Inish is an awesome movie for that movie watcher who loves a good story, without having to watch somebody's guts being blown out or high speed car chases. This movie is not for the perverbial "shoot 'em up" type of fan. This story is truely brought to life by the wonderful actors and actresses in it. Jeni Courtney is quite convincing as the lead role of Fiona, the newly motherless girl who goes to live with her grandparents (Mick Lally and Eileen Colgan)and becomes tangled up with a mystery when she finds out from her cousin Eammon (Richard Sheridan) that Jamie, her long lost brother who was said to have drowned years ago, has actually been seen floating about with seals! The story part told by her grandfatherss cousin, Tadgh is quite good. This is a wonderfully well paced movie, and a great film for people of all ages. Buy or rent today!
