Coco opened with a thick Mexican feeling with fun and exciting environment. Full of colors; the animation has caught the audience eyes since the beginning till the end. The story just flows like the river. Since the very start the audience are meant to love all the characters.

The twists in the film will blow everybody’s mind. How the song Remember Me put at is amazing. They are able to put a beautiful story, beautiful song, beautiful visual into one animated film. Big big applaused to Lee Unkrich and all the team behind this film!

This film is perfect for both adults and kids. Every second worth the money. This film is touching and nothing you’d expected it to be. Warning: prepare a lot of tissues! And this film worth another Oscar for Lee Unkrich!
