A journey into Jack’s world – a man whose heart is made of a clock and to whom loving is forbidden.

Jack et la mécanique du coeur contains all the elements a good movie should have: beautiful emotions, typical characters, cartoon stylish drawings, and lots of musical tunes for all ages. The story of the journey to find the love of a boy whose hearts is made of mechanical clock – Jack – is a life journey. Jack et la mécanique du coeur satisfies our eyes and ears, make us dream, tremble, laugh and cry. We even have stronger emotion when knowing this is the first feature-length film of Malzieu and Stéphane Berla.
