Why watch this movie?
It is a movie that talks about the bond and love a family shares.
The land of the dead is depicted very beautifully. And the musical journey shown all together is like an icing on the cake.
This is the story of a boy who goes through a world of fantasy to follow his passion for “music”.
Miguel pursues his love for singing in spite of his family's ban on music. He stumbles into the Land of the Dead, where he learns about his great-great-grandfather who was a legendary singer.
The movie delivers moments of cinematic diligence and playful pop-culture erudition. Colorful, beautifully animated, and culturally sensitive,” coco” is a movie which has got learning for every age group.
Coco is also about merging the best of modern VFX with ancient tradition.
Editors Lee Unkrich (the director himself) and Steve Bloom did a great job when it comes to performance, story structure, modulation, and pacing throughout the film.
Christopher Boyes and his sound editors created a sonic landscape(a musical composition characterized by the building up of layers of sound to form a densely textured work, especially in electronic music) and did a gorgeous, authentic job.
