A 19th-century drama about a man whose heart was replaced with a clock when he was born. The situation dictates that he should avoid feeling strong emotions -- love, most of all -- but he just can't keep his feelings under wraps.
Tales of the Night weaves together six exotic fables each unfolding in a unique locale, from Tibet, to medieval Europe, to the Land of the Dead. From the imagination of internationally renowned animator Michel Ocelot.
Since the early days, Jerry Lewis - in the line of Chaplin, Keaton and Laurel - had the masses laughing with his visual gags, pantomime sketches and signature slapstick humor. Yet Lewis was... See full summary »

Edinburgh, late 19th century. Little Jack is born on a day so cold that his heart remains frozen. Madeleine the midwife replaces his heart with a cuckoo-clock. It will work, as long as Jack follows the rules, mainly not falling in love. But his encounter with a fiery-eyed girl singing on a street corner and his decision to chase after her will test the resistance of his makeshift heart to the breaking point... Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is a magnificent love story set in an exciting period full of fabulous inventions, eccentric characters and fantastic adventures. Adapted by Mathias Malzieu from his best-selling novel and the gold-selling album by his band Dionysos, this superbly animated movie is about passion and acceptance of others. Written by
The skeletons' band is named "Dionys-Os" as a joke ("os" means "bones"); the real band "Dionysos" made the music of this movie, Mathias Malzieu being the singer of the band. See more »
Even though this is the first time Madeleine has done the clock heart procedure she somehow knew the three rules. See more »
The moment I saw her, I felt a rumbling like an earthquake devastating my clock. My gears started creaking, my tick-tock racing... I was gasping for breath, my head was spinning, my hands were whirring...
How did that feel?
Well, there you go.

I am never a fan of musicals, even in some children's movies, but this movie, I really do love it. I do not enjoy all of the music but it is weird. I like weird lol; the love in this movie is so pure, gentle, and sweet. I adore Jack and Miss Acacia; the first time they met is very cute, adorable, and odd.
Jack heart is very fragile and this love story is a metaphor of love in our own lives today. Our hearts are very fragile and I do not think it is impossible to NOT fall in love. It is medically proved that anger can cause damage to our hearts. WebMD have an article about how anger hurts our hearts.
The way our hearts react when we fall in love, the way our heart hurts when we are dealing with some form of negativity in our relationships with the ones we love, like for example your love one is sick or may hurt you emotionally, etc. In this love story, they dealt with some pain, but at the end their love for each other remain true. It must of been heaven to him, lol, because the ending was somewhat obvious but mysterious as well.
I really enjoyed Jack and Acacia duets and even though Joe was a total butthole; I did like his flow too. This love story is definitely an original. Too bad my son doesn't care for it but when I play Jack and Acacia's first duet; he'll fall asleep.
Too bad Jack had to deal with bullying but that is life sometimes. Some kids are mistreated for being exceptional. I recommend this movie to anyone who like a little oddity. Cheers!
