Despite his familys baffling generations-old ban on music, Miguel (voice of Anthony Gonzalez) dreams of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz (voice of Benjamin Bratt). Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the colourful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Along the way, he meets charming trickster Hector (voice of Gael Garcia Bernal) and together they set off on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind Miguel's family history.

It's visually stunning. This is no cartoon but a benchmark in animated films. The attention to detail is remarkable - when these characters play the guitar they are plucking all the right strings. Disney/Pixar achieved this by placing sensors on real guitarists hands and fingers, and translated their real playing into this film. It's amazing to watch and listen and know both are real, yet in a world of fantasy. It's a brilliant.
The visual gags of eyes popping out and jaws dropping adds a lighthearted theme throughout.
I laughed (it's not a comedy, but it is funny). I cried (it's not a tear jerker, but it does make you emotional). I loved the 3D (it doesn't strain the eyes). I enjoyed the music (it's not an annoying opera with cartoon characters). In fact some of the singing is naturally unpolished just as any amateur would be - a welcome respite from the all too perfect musicals that precede Coco. It was just the right amount of everything, without being average. Far from it.
We have this notion that passing away is a dark somber moment. In Coco it's a Marigold orange petal laden bridge to a world of vibrant colours where the fun continues, rejoice in having lived, and living some more. It doesn't belittle the sadness of losing a loved one but what it does is show you that the story doesn't end there. This story is very much that story.
Remembering and memories are a big part of the plot. As the film concludes there is an emotional scene helping those who have failing memories. Poignant real life stuff set in a medium I wouldn't have thought capable of tackling such topics. You know when people smile with joy and cry at the same time? I did that. A few times actually.
Curl up on the sofa with some popcorn and enjoy the vibrant dialog and visuals, the many humorous moments, the uplifting Mexican music, but have a tissue at hand for when those moments of empathy strike home and a little tear rolls down your cheek. An emotional roller-coaster that when the ride is over you feel good about this world, and the next.
Auch wenn der Film FSK 0 gerated ist, würde ich ab 10 Jahren empfehlen, da der Hintergrund der Geschichte schon komplex ist und verstanden werden sollte.
FAZIT: schöne 3D Tiefenwirkung ohne Popouts. Ein bunter Augenschmaus mit wunderschöner Geschichte.
Vielen Dank für ein "hilfreich" wenn Ihnen meine Rezension gefallen hat.
Il film Coco è, a mio parere, la massima espressione dell'arte dell'animazione in CGI: siamo di fronte ad una storia meravigliosa (con profondi significati) impreziosita da immagini e colori strabilianti.
Un capolavoro da conservare e rivedere ogni volta in cui si ha bisogno di poesia.
I use it with my Spanish classes to teach them about the Day of the Dead too as the information you get in the movie is extremely accurate. You learn about alebrijes, ofrendas, calaveritas and many other traditional Mexican cultural aspects. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves travelling or who just wants to relax enjoying a good movie that will make you forget where you are and take you to Mexico.
If you look a bit beyond the compulsory message about family values, creativity and tradition there is actually an hart-warming in-depth story. All presented on a catchy score from the Frozen music producers.
Brilliant tribute to Mexico.
Get some tissues ready..
When possible we buy the 3D version and this one looked fantastic on our reasonably high-end OLED screen with proper surround sound.
