Wolf Children: Ame and Yuki review
I love Mamoru Hosoda’s movies and I feel like he’s getting so much better not because of the movie’s visual developement, it’s his way of telling stories makes his films very unique. A Slice of life movie with a little pinch of fantasy like this movie (and of course the girl who leapt through time…and Summer Wars)…I feel like out of all the movies he directed, this movie is the best (and I can’t stop watching this movie)
The movie is about Hana who lives with her two children, who are struggling with their choice: live as human or be a wolf. Throughout the stories, Hana struggled w/o her husband’s help and had to move out from the city to quiet small town, because well she wanted her kids to feel free from turning into a wolf (and also isolate themselves from the humans). But throughout the movie Yuki and Ame tries to figure out their own problems and tries to stick to themselves as a human or wolf.
I feel like this movie also shows what a single mom can be. My friend has a daughter (and single) and when we watched this movie yesterday she told me how she knows what Hana went through when she got her first child at 19. I know working by yourself can be super hard but dang Hana can work hard. Plus from her hard work, the villagers helped her with so many stuff. This movie, I felt like can be a life lesson, sort of like, choose what you want to you or best for you. I feel like Yuki decided to pick to be a human because she has a passion for learning new things (and gosh she loved school so much) but for Ame he wanted to do what he was passionate about and also follow his teacher’s footstep.
this is a super great movie, I highly recommend you guys to watch it…plus I’m going to stream this movie at 10:30pm (Pacific time) and don’t worry I will make another text post to let you guys know!!!! U v U
