Storyline

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 Anonymous

Grandiose
10 February 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This film is full of poetry, of sincerity, of lightness embellished by intense emotions and sensations. The world of Dionysos is incredible. This is an animated film, but so much done for adults to me.

/ Spoiler /

The fact is that I was truly surprised by the young age of these lovers! So much maturity in such young minds. By thinking more deeply, it is true that with everything that has happened to him, he could be full of maturity, but he never leaves home before so long, he does not have many life experience. .. It is perhaps precisely what makes it great and innocent maturity. All told, this age might be well suited.

/ End spoiler;) /

A wonderful not to be missed movie!
