Review: Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

Last October 7th, Shout! Factory released Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart for home video, via a Blu-Ray Combo pack that includes a DVD and a Digital copy as well. The French animated film might not be come with as much prestige as one would expect from CG animated features that came from the major studios, but its roots are by no means less impressive – Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is based on the concept album from French rock band Dionysos and the illustrated novel La Mecanique du Coeur, which is written by the band’s lead singer Mathias Malzieu. Produced by Luc Besson’s company, the film also features stunning voicework from Les Miserables’ Samantha Barks and The Game of Thrones’ Michelle Fairley.

Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is based on the French novel La La Mécanique du Cœur (The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart), which is set in late 19th century Edinburgh and follows the titular boy, who was born on a day that is so cold that his heart was literally frozen. Jack’s life was saved by Madeleine the midwife, who inserted a cuckoo clock in place of his defective heart. However, Madeleine left him a warning: the cuckoo-clock heart will only work for as long as Jack observes three golden rules: never touch the hands of the clock, always control your anger, and never, ever fall in love.
