Coco's Remember Me

Photo credits goes to google. First learned about Mexico's Day of the Dead on James Bond's SPECTRE. I thought it strange, for a people to commemorate the dead in skeleton costumes. Disney's and Pixar's Coco, a 2017 Mexican animation of a child's tale on the Day of the Dead somehow erased the uncanny. Or rather, definitively. Let every child watch the movie, especially the children my age and learn from the Mexicans why the living must honor the dead. Perhaps this movie has earned many a highly recommended review, because aside from this being a child's adventure into the realm of the spirit, the story depicts passion for family, tradition, and music. The viewing children are guaranteed a thriller, as a boy fights for his life and his music, and in doing so, unravels the mystery of the past. As well as being guaranteed reminders of life's valuable lessons, and the choices we make. All from a boy's love for music. Do watch Coco.

@eileenleyva When he was singing "remember me" to Coco in hopes that she keeps her father's memory alive.

@Bhebelen14 Wow, a good auntie. I think I shall rest knowing there will be young girls growing up well and good because there is an auntie who is guiding them well right now. Have fun exchanging ideas afterwards, like which scene or scenes affected them enough to cry. My daughters were hurt when the guitar was smashed.

What do you think of the lovestory of Hector and Imelda.

Happens in a matriarchal community. The artist in Hector has to pursue a dream, a heart's desire. The practical wife has to check reality. The artist did decide to come back but he was murdered. If he had gotten home, perhaps the love story would have born more children. Siblings for Coco. But that is not the story,

@CaptAlbertWhisker Imagine away. Your prerogative.

I recently watched Coco and immediately fell in love with it, the animation, the story, the songs, the connection to family, it all touched my heart and this song really made me cry... I had to rewatch the movie a second time and really don't mind watching it again, and again, it's really powerful and gives off a deep meaning everyone needs to see it.

All you said are absolutely true. The plot was exciting enough but the twist in the end was brilliant. The scenes were serendipitous. The music filled the heart, a love song of a father, a promise to a beloved child. Culture and tradition guide the story, and the well obeyed family edicts, imposed by the matriarchs. No music. Shoes. Shoes. The Rivera is a shoemaking family. The predicament of a boy, his asserting of himself, his journey. Okay, will watch again.

Passion, dream family, tradition, love - these affect us each day as we strive to make our lives meaningful and worth living. Perfect idea to expose your baby to a musical animation filled with the essential morals, subliminally, these are instilled in their young minds. And the music brings the soul to greater heights.
