A relaxing movie about how a human mother has to bring up two children who are part wolf all alone. In the sense of tone and visuals this is a good movie that will keep you entertained……however, if you sit back and think about some moments you start to see problems.
Yuki is telling us the story of this film….which makes me wonder why in the first half of the film when hana (her mother) met her father did all of their meet up stories start with Hana leaving the laundromat? Was her mother obsessed with talking about it? I know she worked there but a lot of these scenes with her leaving the laundromat could have been cut out.
Another thing that bugged was that Hana never questioned where Ookami (her husband) was getting them birds from? Wouldn’t it make a lot more sense for him to be shot for poaching someone’s birds out of there garden….that and he is a huge wolf!
You would think the discovery of a wolf in the city would gather a lot more attentions then 3-4 people walking by on a bridge. O_O There is a random woman crying about a wolf being disposed of and no one finds that strange!
Why did Hana force Ame to go to school when Yuki had to really convince her she wanted to go and that she would not turn into a wolf?
Did social services just give up on looking for the children soon as they left the city?
