One More Time

I do not intend to imitate Alejandro's little nephew Ezra and go to the movie theater to see "Coco" over and over again.  (Alejandro finally saw the movie in Mexico last weekend, and his nephew accompanied him.  Ezra has now seen the movie seven times!)  However, yesterday I did go with a friend to see "Coco" a second time.

I enjoyed the movie just as much the second time around, and, yes, I once again cried at the ending.  (Alejandro admitted that he cried too.)  

While we were in the mall, I stopped in a music store and bought the soundtrack of "Coco". I love the music, although I prefer the Spanish version of the song "Remember Me" ("Recuérdame").  Here is a link to a YouTube video of it sung by well-known Mexican singer Carlos Rivera...

Recuérdame

The movie is nearing the end of its eight week run in Mexico where it quickly became the all-time box office hit of the Mexican cinema.  Too bad.  If it had still been in the theaters when I return to Mexico in January, I would have gone a third time, just to see the Spanish version!  However, I suppose that the DVD will be out by that time, and I intend to buy it while I am down there.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, I would assume that you have an interest in Mexico.  So I strongly recommend  that go out and see this beautiful movie, which has been described by some as "a love letter to Mexico".   And don't forget to bring some tissues.

  1. Sorry I haven't commented much, but I am a lover of ALL things Mexico!

    I have only seen Coco one time but would definitely see it again because I thought the movie was delightful!!!

    A lot of the characters were soooo realistic, and I thought their "take" on the Day of the Dead was very, very cool.

    P.S. I could probably be like Ezra and watch this movie again and again!! LOL

    1. Thanks for your comment. I hope you enjoy my blog... in less than a month I will be back in Mexico with more posts about my experiences there.
      I don't think an animated movie has ever touched my heart the way "Coco".
