This is without question a typical Disney / Pixar movie. It is much more the distance to pure entertainment – the hand of the depth of human chasms and complexity extending. With “Coco” should entertain both adults and children alike, but also be shaped instructive. Cheap laughter soft social criticism in the childlike garb and pure eye candy is enhanced by sensitive issues such as deepening Existential inquiry.
As a result, the new movie of the famous animation studio is closer to reality than ever before, despite a fantastic detour to the Land of the Dead. Here, child-friendly access to complex topics is made possible, as hardly any other film has ever done before.
