The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

Mathias Malzieu’s novel The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is currently being made into a feature length animated film. The storyline begins with Little Jack being born on the coldest day of the year -- a day so cold his heart is frozen solid and must be grafted to a little cuckoo-clock in order for him to live. 
 
In addition to being an author, Malzieu also happens to be the lead singer of the French group Dionysos who are composing the film's soundtrack. A few years ago they released this delightful music video as a promo featuring a peek at what's to come. Of course it includes plenty of romance and drama and gears and cogs. Personally, I can't wait to view the final product. Enjoy!

I actually recently picked up the book for this, (my friend let me borrow it) and I really reccommend the book, too! I can't believe it's being made into a feature length! That's wonderful!~

From what I understand Malzieu is co-directing and since he wrote the book I'm assuming he has very high expectations for the production. The fact that they went on hiatus for a while makes me think he wants to do it right rather than spit something out that is less than wonderful.

I am so excited for this!! La Mecanique du Coeur is one of my favorite albums of all time and it's so perfect to become a movie. CAN'T WAIT.

Oh AWESOME. I found this music video/song a while back and became minorly obsessed with it.

Hope the movie is just as awesome.

I love the original music video. I only know it as the video for Tais Tois Mon Couer. I'm very excited to see what develops! :D
