Coco is a Spanish-language movie that tells the story of Miguel, a young boy from a family of shoemakers who dreams of becoming a musician. When he accidentally finds himself in the Land of the Dead, he teams up with a charming trickster named Hector to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary musician, and learn the truth about his family’s past.
I remember watching Coco for the first time and being immediately captivated by its colorful and vibrant animation, catchy music, and heartwarming story. As the movie progressed, I found myself emotionally invested in the characters and their journey.
One of the most emotional scenes in the movie for me was when Miguel sings the song “Remember Me” to his great-grandmother Coco, who has dementia and struggles to remember her past. As Miguel sings, the memories of her father, who was a musician, flood back to her, and she joins in on the song. The scene was incredibly touching, and I couldn’t help but shed a tear.
The movie also explores themes of family, tradition, and the power of music to connect people across generations. As someone who comes from a family with a strong cultural heritage, I related to the importance of honoring and preserving traditions while also pursuing one’s dreams and passions.
My Verdict on the movie:
Coco was an incredibly emotional and touching movie that left a lasting impact on me. It reminded me of the power of storytelling and how movies can touch our hearts and connect us to our own experiences and emotions.
