Coraline ofrece una premisa y estética visual seductoras, manejando la historia con un gran mensaje pero sin llegar a una conclusión detonante que la hubiese convertido en una obra maestra.
Coraline is a movie about a girl named Coraline who moves into a strange community to
find out that the people who live next door are even stranger. After moving into the new apartment her parents work on a gardening catalogue and seem to never have time for her making food or even cleaning the place. Coraline then meets wybie a boy who apparently will never keep his mouth shut, Mr Bobinski a russian mouse circus trainer, Miriam Forcible, and Apryl Spink.
As i mentioned before, her parents didn't really have time for her so she had to find her own way of having fun. After waking up in the middle of the night coraline is surprised by a mouse and decides to chase it down the stairs and into the family room to find a slot in the wall almost like a forbidden little door. She eneters it and sees that her mother is there and so is her father but something is off about them her father suddenly learned to play the piano and is no longer busy with work and her mother is making her favourite food and being the nicest person to her. They call her caroline as if they are her parents but then she realizes that they have buttons for eyes.
The next morning she wakes up and notices that it was all a dream because once she gets downstairs her parents and back to treating her like a bag of rubbish. After her visit to bobinskis wybie gives coraline a doll that looks exactly like her but instead has buttons for eyes. Coraline takes the doll not thinking anything of it and goes home, that night she goes to sleep again and is much happier to be back because not only are the second parent's nice but everything else also better than the real world after enjoying her time the second mom asks her to join them forever but coraline disagrees which then leads to a series of horrible events such as kidnapping sewing wybie's mouth together and a lot of other strange things.
After trying to escape that crazy world coraline is then surprised when her cat starts talking to hert and tells her that the second mother is actually a woman who kidnaps children and eats them caroline tries to run but mother catches her and puts her into a prison after seeing the ghost of the other children coraline realizes her parents are missing so she makes a deal with mother 2 and says that if she finds her parents that she must let all the souls and her parents go and if not she will stay with her.
All in All she finds them and then returns to her original world and finds out it was all a dream and her parents were just out shopping, she runs to them with joy to find out the good news that the gardening catalogue was good and her parents start to care for her. I do enjoy the plot but in my opinion the art and characters are a little weird and creepy. Numerous times the movie had a dark tone to it which made me not like it as much as i could have.
Final avaliation: 8,4 out of 10.
