Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

Jack et la mécanique du coeur

France, 2013


Never turn the hands and never get mad. And certainly don’t fall in love. Flouting these rules could mean death for little Jack: he was born on the coldest day that Scotland has ever known and because his heart froze to ice on that fateful night, the midwife quickly replaced it with a cuckoo clock.
