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.

My wife and I both felt this was an all ages family friendly movie. There is one scene in which a woman who is subtly hinted as being naked is shown kissing a wolf-man. It is the type of scene that a 5 year old will not even blink an eye at, but an 11 year old might find a bit embarrassing. Other than this brief scene, this is an emotionally realistic film about childhood and parenting that is capable of entertaining any patient movie viewers in the family.

Cool movie. Recommend for 12 and ups.

This is such a beautiful film, a true pleasure to watch. The artists captured nature in such a real way-from a gathering cumulus cloud to the rain pouring off rooftops. It was like watching an animated fairytale painting.
And the story is just as compelling, capturing the hardships and sacrifices of motherhood as well as the joys, adventure and closeness of family.

This is such a heartwarming story, even for a person that enjoys Hellsing and Monster as her anime of choice. The soundtrack is so charming and there's equal parts adorable laughs and tear-jerking moments coupled with beautiful animation.

A touching story about family, choosing one's path in life, community, and love.

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.
