MPAA rating, Not Rated Format, Prime Video (streaming online video) The Book of Life imagines Jesus returning to Earth in (accompanied by PJ. Format: Prime Video (streaming online video) THE BOOK OF LIFE is produced by Guillermo del Toro, directed by Jorge Gutierrez, and features an outstanding. It's called The Book of Life, but it takes place on the Day of the Dead and in the But if those who've passed on are remembered no more, then.

The plot actually involved very heavy themes. While Manolo in The Book of Life was killed by a snake bite, it was from a strange mythical demonic-like character. When one of the major characters in Coco is murdered, he is poisoned by his best friend. The impact is much stronger. The culture seemed to only serve as a backdrop. It was fine!

For one, there were no glaring mistakes in the plot. Plus, there were excuses for most of these elements, and the events had a logical flow. But timing-wise it was weak. I have no idea how much time passed since Manolo died until the end of the film. It all looks like one day, but it could have been several.

The Day of the Dead was an essential theme throughout, along with music and family. The closest I could come up with to a deus ex machina were the spirit animals, but even they had a rhyme and reason to them.

It was completely believable to me.

Characters There really is too much to compare here for a short article. However, I will do my best. The characters from The Book of Life were relatively typical.

You had the romantic hero with a literally pure heart thanks to a magical plot device , a dashing jock that has too much confidence and egotism to be believable again thanks to a magical plot device , and a rebellious young lady who is the Mary Jane of the film.

She is educated, beautiful, refined, and trained in both sword fighting and martial arts. In short: she has no flaws whatsoever. I would give these characters a B-, pretty typical and nothing special.

In Coco, you have the young boy discovering his place in the world. He is the driving force of the movie and has wonderful personality quirks such as his dimple trick and flaws such as his rebellious attitude against his family. Then, you also have Hector, the deceased man who's desperate to see his daughter again. Hector needs to get his picture in a family shrine or else he'll officially be forgotten by everyone in his family.

He struggles to help Miguel, hoping it'll lead to seeing his daughter. But along the way, he discovers the truth about his own past that he never known otherwise. He grows and develops, and is fun and silly as well as deep and often conflicted. Finally, you have Ernesto de la Cruz. In life, Ernesto was a confident, beloved musician, and in death his reputation and adoration make him hard to find.

While he seems like the perfect man, you eventually learn his secret, and it becomes a major driving point to the plot. No magical devices needed to make them interesting characters.

To put it succinctly, the musicians were more concerned with performing covers of pop songs than producing original music. These covers felt forced to me, trying too hard to appeal to a mass audience. However, it's just a typical love song. And it's a little sappy, to say the least. Pretty much everything else was a cover, and as a result they were jarring.

None of them felt like pop songs played by a mariachi band. And each time you get something different out of it.

The first is the popular version sung as a classic song from back in the day, and it sounds like a man asking his lover to remember him. The second time you discover that it was written as a lullaby, and the song has a very different meaning. The final in-story version plays in the penultimate scene, and explaining any more would spoil the movie. But I can attest that the entire theater, including myself, was in tears during it. The last version is the modern day pop song which is fun because it includes both the Spanish and English versions in it sung as a duet.

In fact, some are rather similar. The scenery of both films features massive, tall, colorful, fantastical landscapes. Both have a strong theme with the yellow petals, as is culturally appropriate, and both have fantastic character designs. As such, all the characters are wooden dolls, which allows for some fun visuals and gags, and gives them a unique feel I really liked. The characteristics of the wood became characteristics of the characters.

Even the dead characters had fun carvings on them, and there are plenty of opportunities for epic shots. Miguel enters the City of the Remembered. Anne had to keep very quiet and was often afraid. Anne keeps a diary On her thirteenth birthday, just before they went into hiding, Anne was presented with a diary. During the two years in hiding, Anne wrote about events in the Secret Annex, but also about her feelings and thoughts. In addition, she wrote short stories, started on a novel and copied passages from the books she read in her Book of Beautiful Sentences.

Writing helped her pass the time.

When the Minister of Education of the Dutch government in England made an appeal on Radio Orange to hold on to war diaries and documents, Anne was inspired to rewrite her individual diaries into one running story, titled Het Achterhuis The Secret Annex.

The diary Anne receives for her 13th birthday. Photo collection: Anne Frank Stichting, Amsterdam The hiding place is discovered Anne started rewriting her diary, but before she was done, she and the other people in hiding were discovered and arrested by police officers on 4 August The police also arrested two of the helpers.

To this day, we do not know the reason for the police raid. Anne is deported to Auschwitz Via the offices of the Sicherheitsdienst the German security police , a prison in Amsterdam, and the Westerbork transit camp, the people from the Secret Annex were put on transport to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp.

Coco vs The Book of Life

The train journey took three days, during which Anne and over a thousand others were packed closely together in cattle wagons. There was little food and water and only a barrel for a toilet. Upon arrival at Auschwitz, Nazi doctors checked to see who would and who would not be able to do heavy forced labour.

Around people from Anne's transport were immediately taken to the gas chambers and murdered. Anne, Margot and their mother were sent to the labour camp for women. Otto ended up in a camp for men.
