Jack and The Cuckoo-Clock Heart kept me captivated from beginning to end. The visual style of the movie is truly fantastic and shows the emotions of the characters though visual whimsy. The look of the film is a bit of steam punk with lots of eye candy of interesting designed gadgets and background surroundings. The story we found to be finely crafted and felt that it flows smoothly over the course of the film. I didn’t realize it was going to be more on the musical side but felt it fit exceptionally feel. A lot of thoughts, feelings, and emotions definitely will be invoked upon viewing this such film of the heart.
I would urge parents to take into consideration the pg rating. In fact, I wouldn’t recommend it for children under the age of 13. There’s nothing particularly awful as in gore or swearing. It’s not graphic. I just believe the maturity of those who may be viewing this film be taken into consideration. It’s about love and we all know that it can get messy with our heart sending feelings to our brain we sometimes just can’t make sense of.
The bonus features on this DVD I enjoyed. Each of the characters in the movie are broken down and explained and there’s a segment on how the movie was adapted from book. It’s always nice to see the behind the scenes to truly appreciate all the hard work that went into making such a engaging film. All features are in French with English subtitles. The runtime of the movie is 89 minutes and it didn’t feel too long or too short. I would definitely recommend seeing it and if you’ve seen A Monster in Paris you’ll pleased to know the same producers are part of this one.
