A must see
Coco, a piece of jewelry signed by Pixar
Sometimes it is appropriate to let a story settle, so that it can gain intensity. Directors Adrian Molina and Lee Unkrich (previously author of the very moving Toy story 3) had the wisdom to spend six years deepening the project and refining the script. Well took them. The film is splendid and reserves a last third on the thread of emotion, which will push some spectators to take out their handkerchiefs. Coco’s story sets up a young hero, Miguel. For several generations now, music has been banned from his family. Which turns out to be a real heartbreak for him because he feels that deep inside him an instinct pushes him to become a musician, like the famous mariachi Ernesto de la Cruz, who has decided to give up everything to give free rein to his passion for music.
Available on Disney + from January 15
