I really enjoyed this movie. Difficult to determine where it fits in my Pixar rankings, but definitely one of my favourite movies of the year so far.
As I am from South Africa I know very little about Mexican traditions, Day of the Dead, etc, and found all of that really interesting. But it was the love of music and the themes of family, forgiveness and acceptance that truly resonated.
My only objection, and this is simply due to currently living with somebody who is in the final stages of Alzheimer's disease, I did not appreciate the depiction of Coco's dementia/memory loss. I wish it was clear what exactly it entailed. At some moments it seemed like she could not remember anything, could not speak, could almost not move - very much like later stages of Alzheimer's. But then when Miguel sings Remember Me, she can suddenly speak clearly and remembers everything as if it just happened? She knows who everyone is? Was remembering her dad all she needed to "snap" out of the dementia? Can I please get that magic song for my mom?
Like I said, this is a small nit to pick, and I'm sure it only bothered me due to the current situation with my mom, but for me, it kept this really good movie from being great...
