Coco Movie Review:

An animated film by Lee Unkrich, Adrian Molina. With Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Alanna Ubach, Renee Victor Coco has marked its stand. Coco is a colourful (and musical) love letter to Mexico and its culture, but also a perfect story of training and a tender portrait of the family, which learns to embrace the point of view of the new generations. 

In short, the Disney Pixar continues to surpass itself, and this time it does so with one of its most amazing visual efforts. The film literally overflows with music, thanks to the soundtrack of Michael Giacchino and the songs: all the sweet and melancholic Remember Me, written by Oscar winners for Frozen, which in the Italian version, Ricordami, is played by Michele Bravi. 

At dubbing, we find the Iron Lady by X-Factor, Mara Maionchi, together with Valentina Lodovini and Matilda De Angelis. Miguel Rivera is a boy who lives in a small Mexican town and has a dream: to sing and play the guitar, just like his legend, the local legend Ernesto de la Cruz. 

His, however, is a family of humble shoemakers, who has banned music for generations, since the great-great-grandfather of Miguel has abandoned his wife and daughter to pursue his artistic career. But in the Día de Muertos, the spectacular Mexican Halloween, anything can happen, even if a living child finds himself stuck in the underworld, to deal with his loved ones, extinct by way of saying. 

The cartoon finally conquers when he opens the doors of the afterlife, with a party of colours and notes that would bring everyone back to life. The best sequence is probably one in which the dead must pass an unlikely customs to set foot on the Earth. 

Coco gives us the most beautiful reconstruction of the realm of the dead since the time of Nightmare Before Christmas and The Bride Corpse but without the tone Tim Burton's gothic style. Remains the slapstick and funny touch of the skeletons, an inexhaustible source of humor, but it mixes with scenes that guaranteed an AWWW!
