ladies and gentlemen, my new favorite film, the wolf children
long story short, it is probably the greatest family film ever created!
the story is about a 19 year old girl named Hana, who meets and falls in love with a man who has the ability to turn into a wolf. And this is probably the only problem with the movie, because we NEVER figure out the guy's name. And its not like we only see him in flashbacks, the first 30 minutes of the film is about hana and this guy falling in love, he has a personality, he has a backstory, you do care for him, but all he's missing is a name (ya know what? Screw it, Imma call him mr mcfuzzykins)!
Anywho, the two fall in love and give birth to two children, Ame and Yuki. Unfortunately, soon afterwards, the husband dies (rest in peace mr mcfuzzykins!) leaving hana alone to take care of her children. And if that wasnt bad enough, the two kids are also wolf children as well.
and thats pretty much all you need to know, this movie is just about hana raising these two kids and the challenges that come not only with parenting, but with parenting two supernatural creatures (because this is anime god dangit, there's no such thing as a NORMAL family film XD)
but in all honesty, the film pulls this off splendidly! For one, there's no bad guy, yeah, not a villain to be seen ANYWHERE. Thats the best thing about this movie, the characters, hana is by far, the stongest female character I've seen in a while. The lengths she's willing to go to for her children is downright admirable. And while I'm on the subject, the kids are incredibly likeable, as well as realistic (despite, you know, the obvious). They both actually act like real kids!
this film is so good, that I honestly cant think of anything else to say except...WATCH IT!!! You owe it to yourself to see this wonderfully uplifting movie
