One of Hosoda’s most movingly poetic and beautiful animations, the fairy tale opens with the romance between college student Hana and a mysterious wolfman. After he dies, Hana moves to the mountains and struggles to raise her werewolf kids – Yuki and Ame, who have to find their own identities and places in the world. In memory of his mother, Hosoda invests this family story with profound emotion of parental devotion, in lyrical hand-drawn visuals juxtaposed with silent imagery. Joyful and fascinating, yet an underlying sense of melancholy lingers.
