Jack & The Cuckoo Clock Heart - In Case You Missed It
La Mécanique du cœur
I think I need a new heart! Ariana Mcbride. Un bonne explication sur se devenir adulte. Jack discovers that the three years he spent in a coma have transformed him from a teenager in to a young man.
Someone like myself watching this film for the first time may not be able to follow the fast pace and references the movie makes without knowing the original source material. I thought the film was a standalone project, and was really disappointed by how generic the story was.

Unfortunately, nobody wants Jack because of his strange clock heart, and so he ends up living with Madeleine as his adoptive mother. She tells Jack that his clock heart is weak and so to avoid premature death, he must obey three golden rules: Never touch the hands of the clock, control his anger, and never fall in love.
