Have you ever watched a movie or read a book so wonderful that the moment it’s over you’re left with the feeling of longing? You want more but there’s no more to be had.
This weekend, that was me after watching the French film The Boy with the Cuckoo Clock Heart. I won’t give away details for the movie, but I will tell you it was extremely bittersweet. I loved it so much, that I immediately went about scouring 8tracks for any playlists relating to this story. Unfortunately, I only found three and while I loved all of them, my favorite was Cuckoo Clock Heart.
Seriously, give it a listen, even if you haven’t watched the movie. It perfectly captures the spirit of the movie and our plucky protagonist. Hopefully it encourages you to watch the film (which does have an English version).
