Newcomer Anthony Gonzales and Gael García Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries) star in this Oscar-winning Disney-Pixar animated adventure about Dia de los Muertos, co-directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3).

Coco follows the secret musical ambitions of 12-year-old Miguel (Gonzalez) who comes from a family of shoemakers that may be his town’s only music-hating household. But Miguel harbours a secret desire to seize his musical moment, inspired by his favourite singer of all time, the late Ernesto de la Cruz (Benjamin Bratt). When Miguel discovers an amazing link between himself and De la Cruz, he takes action to emulate the famous singer and, in doing so, accidentally enters the Land of the Dead.

There, it's not long before Miguel encounters the souls of his own family - generations' worth of Rivera ancestors. Still, given the opportunity to roam around the Land of the Dead, Miguel decides to track down De la Cruz himself. He teams up with another friendly spirit - a trickster named Hector, (Garcia Bernal) - to find De la Cruz, earn his family’s blessing to perform, and return to the Land of the Living before time runs out.

Though the movie drags in places, and features a few too many childish gags...the story’s sincere emotional resolution earns the sobs it’s sure to inspire.

Being dead has never looked as fun as it does in Pixar’s latest adventure, bursting with skeletons, magical spells and Mexico’s annual Day of the Dead.

If "Coco" doesn't quite reach the highest level of Pixar masterpieces, it plays a time-tested tune with captivating originality and flair, and with roving, playful pop-culture erudition.

A rousing, affecting, fun and much-needed return to form after underwhelming Finding Nemo and Cars sequels and will help to ensure that Pixar’s legacy remains intact.

Pixar's Day-of-the-Dead gem pays loving tribute to Mexican culture with animation that brims over with visual pleasures, comic energy and emotional wallop.

The plot, arguably, comes packed with more complications and psychedelic spirit-critters than it really needs. But you can't blame Pixar's animators for having a field day with the film's imagery...

The script's ghoulish touches and mordant flashes of wit turn out to be its most disarming qualities.

A richly woven tapestry of comprehensively researched storytelling, fully dimensional characters, clever touches... and vivid, beautifully textured visuals.

I love Pixar, most of the time, and this is the best one so far if you count the terrific and enthralling story, constant humor and emotional exploration that carries you through the film. I’m sure Del toro’s film is wonderful with its on graces but for pure pleasure and tons of integrity this film stands on its own. If you are a human don’t miss it!
