Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

Animation . Romance . Adventure . Drama . Fantasy

In Scotland 1874, Jack is born on the coldest day ever. Because of the extreme cold, his heart stops beating. The responsible midwife in Edinburgh finds a way to save him by replacing his heart with a clock. So he lives and remains under the midwife's protective care. But he must not get angry or excited because that endangers his life by causing his clock to stop working. Worse than that, when he grows up, he has to face the fact he cannot fall in love because that too could stop his delicate heart.

More Info:
  • Sherilyn Connelly

    The characters aren't quite stylized enough; though they have skinny bodies and disproportionately big heads, their just-realistic-enough facial features often veer into the Uncanny Valley.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Rob Humanick

    The film is at once enabled and hindered by its utter strangeness, an intrinsic quality surely exacerbated in its English-language release.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Rather than linger on the project’s shortcomings, which only disappoint relative to the story’s incredible creative potential, it should be said that in partnership with Berla, Malzieu has created a fully realized, wildly imaginative storybook world and populated it with eccentric characters.

    Variety Full Review
  • Charles Solomon

    Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart stubbornly remains less than the sum of its parts. But its rich visual imagery suggests the talented artists involved could create something exciting and truly original if they had a better script.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    This computer animated work has strikingly designed characters, and some good isolated sequences, but the script’s un bordel (French for shambolic mess).

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    There’s no humor and no pathos. The Cuckoo-Clock Heart, pretty as it is, lacks any heart at all.
