Coco and the power of memories blu-ray Review home video
The greatest merit of Coco was to be able to create a new milestone after Inside Out, who had really redefined the canons of animation Pixar, both for the subject and for the development of the same. Also in Coco, narrative and visual go hand in hand to build a remarkable universal history, though rooted in mexican traditions, a choice is not random and counter-current than in the past and in the line of “policy” anti-Trump given the behavior of the new president towards immigrants. Even more important, given that in the film we speak of the border “last” for humanity as a whole: death, and then the World of the Dead than of the Living. A world that in the mexican tradition we honor every year on the Dia de Muetos (Day of the Dead) through the ofrendas, or small shrines with food, objects and, above all, a photo of loved ones to honor and remember them. It is in this word that is the key to everything Coco: remember.
How to sing the best original song Oscar-2018, “Remember Me”, without the picture of the “dear departed” not across the border once a year to see how they are the members of his family still in life, and risks to be forgotten. Once forgotten, their essence, their soul, will disappear for ever. It seems a concept so simple and yet if you are thinking about to your friends and family disappeared prematurely while you read these lines you will agree that it is equally powerful and universal. How many times have we thought that we would take a chance with a loved one, even if only to tell him that we loved him, even if he maybe knew it already? The power and importance of memory in the Coco goes hand in hand with that of the family, understood as the nucleus of the blood, of their origins, their heritage, their identity, their own heritage. It is often said that parents do not choose one, make us what we are today, as well as the generations that came before them: in the new “classic” Pixar there is in all this. And much more.
Because Coco is not satisfied, it goes beyond. Because to tell the story of little Miguel, who travels in the realm of the dead to be able to realize her dream of becoming a singer, it is paraphrasing and making to the soap opera, exaggerating deliberately aspects to tell a story with a great shot of the scene, in the best tradition of the soap of south america. And there is the music, for the first time ever present and so important in a film by Pixar.
In the edition home video of Coco out in these days in addition to the packaging of colorful as well as the World of the Afterlife represented: not the dark and seen as something dangerous, but bright and mild – to cross the “border” we want a petal of the flower – but as a natural step of life, in the best mexican tradition. The 3D allows for an immersion in this fantasy world, inspired by the burtoniana but staying on and redefining the canons Disney Pixar. The special contents – less edition Steelbook, unfortunately, that contains a bonus disc's only extra – include “Welcome to the fiesta” an initial presentation of the film, with commentary, of the directors Lee Unkich and Adrian Molina and producer Darla K. Anderson are the visual aspect of how it would have been the Afterlife in Coco, and the story of Miguel. Look in-depth in “Mi familia” on the importance of the relatives first of all to the crew of the film, which has brought a bit of each of the families in that of Miguel, as abuelita, which uses a power strip to threaten kindly family and the world. “Dante” focuses on the faithful dog of Miguel, a stray that is later discovered to be much more, as he wants the mexican tradition. The crew is documented really well, as explained in “Mi familia” during their trip perlustazione in Mexico a few years ago. In addition to the usual audio Commentary closes the special “How to draw a skeleton” to show to the public as a Daniel Arriaga Character Art Director of the film was approached to create the skeletons and the World of the Dead, Coco. Coco is a movie to see again and again, and, despite a bit of ruffianaggine on end, never as this time is a story for the whole “familia”.
