SPOTLIGHT ON DELIGHTFULY GORGEOUS ANIMATED ADVENTURE 'JACK AND THE CUCKOO CLOCK HEART' FROM LUC BESSON'S EUROPACORP WITH VOICES OF SAMANTHA BARKS AND MICHELLE FAIRLEY

ANIMATED ADVENTURE
JACK AND THE CUCKOO CLOCK HEART
Here's something delightful for you this Sunday - a spotlight on lovely and deeply creative new animated adventure JACK AND THE CUCKOO CLOCK HEART which has already played in French cinemas seen by hundreds of thousands of cinema goers and will be released in United States later this year when it will also be available for digital download and home video. The movie comes from Dionysos' singer Mathias Malzieu and music video director St├ęphane Berla and is produced by Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp! This magical animated adventure is actually a big screen adaptation of Malzieu's novel and concept album of the same name, talking about passion and acceptance of others! LES MISERABLES' Samantha Barks and GAME OF THRONES' Michelle Fairley, and Sophia Ellis lead the English version voice cast!

JACK'S STORY
 THE JOURNEY OF ONE HEART
The magnificent love story of JACK AND THE CUCKOO CLOCK HEART CGI animated fairy tale is set in an exciting period full of fabulous inventions, eccentric characters and fantastic adventures taking place in late-19th century Edinburgh in Scotland where Little Jack is born on a day so cold that his heart remains frozen. His life is saved by inserting a cuckoo clock in its place, but it will work only if he observes three golden rules: He must never touch the hands of the clock, he must control his anger and he must never fall in love. When Jack sets eyes on a young girl singing on a street corner, the hands of his clock-heart begin to race: Jack is prepared to do anything to find her again and so, like a Don Quichotte, he sets out on a quest for love that will take him from the Scottish lochs to Paris, and from there to Andalusia.

  4. I noticed the Tim Burton influence as well. The lines and the palettes used are much like his.

    "Just don't fall in love" his mother said. And of course, that's exactly what happens. Looks like a good one darling.

    2. I know. Dezz hated my Bluebat avatar so much, I had to destroy it or he would send his army of hot penguins to whip the goth out of me.

      Delete
    3. they do like to whip people.... especially bats.... they're jealous of their capes..... which are more elegant than their tuxedos

  12. This film looks a bit nutty, which is right up my alley! I know you don't like Burton, but I am a huge fan of his weirdness, and if he was an inspiration, I will love this one too!
