Mamoru Hosoda strikes again. In my opinion, this is his best overall work surpassing The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars. As Miyazaki and Ghibli seem to be slowing down a bit, Mamoru Hosoda is ready to take the torch. The concept of wolf children growing up in our world is something that I've never seen, but the themes of acceptance, finding your own path in live, and, of course, a mother's love are what truly hold and elevate this movie. The duality in the development of Yuki and Ame and where they want to end up in this world are the highlights of the film. I can't wait for the dub to be released. Go watch this ASAP.

ALONE AND CONTENT? ALONE AND CONTENT??? how the fuck a "happy" ending can be so fucking gutting? i know it's a metaphor for staying true to your nature, but shit, that mum gave up best years of her life for those damn kids and they abandoned her, and she ended up all fucking alone. i don't care how much she smiles, and that there's a warm melody playing in the background, that was pretty fucked up.

Incredible, the silences in this movie are magical!

The story is a little simplistic and slow moving, particularly to start, but very sweet and some of the scenery is beautiful.
I'll watch it again!

I was prepping myself for how sad it would be, and yeah that whole first 28 minutes, with the relationship starting, and living in the city, trying to raise 2 rambunctious children, gosh it's so sad/adorable/and relatable at the same time. Hell this movie even has an Up montage!"

And when we get to the countryside and them living that life now, its kind of like a quick sigh of relief from all the crying you did as you know watch some slice of life incidents with these kids getting older, mainly going to school and figuring out their own paths in life. And at the heart of it all is the mother "Hana", god she's so kind and hard-working but also goes through A LOT, to raise and protect these two kids, and when we get to the part involving a storm and the final emotional moments, it all wraps up in one glorious film. Can't wait to check out Mamoru Hosoda's other work.

I must say I have a soft spot for children, but this is still such a beautiful film - both story, music and art wise. It's sad, sweet and nostalgic, I can see my own mother in Hana and I wish all parents were as supportive of their children as Hana is.

I have now seen both the original Japanese and the English dub - I highly recommend both!

Really enjoyed this movie. I wasn't completely sold until the "Childhood" part of the story began, I have to admit, but after that, I was on board all the way. It did feel like a long film, but looking at the amount of time that actually passed, it's no wonder. All in all, a great film which possibly ranks above Summer Wars and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (and that's saying something!)

Another great movie from Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time)! I had my expectations set high and after recovering from what has to be a furry lover's wet dream it did deliver the goods. A beautiful ode to motherhood.
