Everytime I think of this movie I am brought back to the severely awkward moment when she is in bed with this wolf man, and he tenderly reaches out with his wolf hand...THAT IS LIKE TWICE THE SIZE OF HER FACE and then his wolf face comes on screen and it hits you: Bestiality.

One of the best films. I don’t know how to put this into words. Heartwarming, enchanting, emotionally moved, simply beautiful. This movie is like from another magical world. I would wholeheartedly recommend this film to everyone. I feel very lucky to get to watch this movie. Thank you TSCPL.

I found the plot of this film to be very moving but very odd. I can't say it really gripped me, but the animation was remarkably beautiful and it was worth the watch just for that.

Wolf Children is a bridge between 2-D animation and 3-D "live action" (sic), seamlessly blending the best of hand drawing and photo realism. It's a coming of age story that both children and adults can enjoy, but unusually focuses on the perspective of the mother, rather than her highly special offspring. Beautiful and breathtaking (see attached video).

Would you like to cry tears of joy and also sadness? Then this is the film for you. And the detailed, beautiful animation will make you swoon and even if you aren't part wolf or single mom, you will completely relate to what every single character is going through. Absolutely wonderful film.

The movie “Wolf Children” is a wonderful movie with great detail and animation. The animation of this movie was outstanding and is very similar to the animation of many anime movies. However, the animation of some characters and backgrounds was very well done. ”Wolf Children” has a well-produced plot with a young girl falling in love with a wolf-man and her struggles raising her half human and half wolf children. The ending of this movie is a bit sad and emotional with an alone mother living by herself and two siblings were separated from each other while choosing their path in either the wolf world or the human world. “Wolf Children” did have a romantic theme during the beginning but then produced a sad theme through the rest of the movie. The emotion and mood which this movie emits is emotional and seems a bit frustrating mainly with sadness and drama. I believe that this movie is enjoyable for all ages as it is understandable and quite simple. Anyone who enjoys emotional and fantasy movies should definitely watch “Wolf Children”. Rating 5/5

One of many animated films I like, that portrays how important family is, and the growth of how much it can influence you as a kid to adult hood. Finding meaning in your own roots.

The theme of the film is the love between parents and children. The story covers 13 years and begins with a 19-year-old college student named Hana who encounters and falls in "fairy tale-like" love with a "wolf man." After marrying the wolf man, Hana gives birth and raises two wolf children—an older sister named Yuki who was born on a snowy day, and a younger brother named Ame who was born on a rainy day. The four quietly lived in a corner of a city to conceal the existence of the "wolf children," but when the wolf man suddenly dies, Hana decides to move to a rural town far removed from the city.
