Jack and The Cuckoo-Clock Heart

7 yrs 88 minutes 2013 6.9

Late 19th century in Edinburgh little Jack is born, on a day so cold that his heart freezes to ice and cracks. The midwife Madeleine saves his life by replacing the heart with a cuckoo clock. But she does it with three admonitions: He must not touch the pointers, he must not lose his temper, and in no way at all should he fall in love. But one day he lays eyes on the fiery Miss Acacia and his heart literally goes cuckoo. Jack is rescued but is told that his heart will stop working if he does not forget her. But he realizes he is willing to risk everything to see Miss Acacia again and goes on a journey through Europe to find her.
