Poignant animated feature about senior citizens is one the year's best Spanish films.
The subject of old age gets the kind of attention it deserves but is too rarely afforded in the affecting Wrinkles.
A charming production, poignant and tender and one that is bound to move and compel you - while remaining so effortlessly subtle throughout.
A surprising thing indeed - an intelligent, entertaining, altogether unsentimental evocation of the experience of old age.
The film has a defiance and humour reminiscent of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. It's far more uplifting than its subject matter might suggest.
It's a compact and obliquely moving film, deftly constructed to let the dying of the light arrive, not as sunset, but a kind of dawn.
This movie has the same desolate quality as Philip Larkin's poem The Building, and yet it is tender and lovable, too.
There are some really charming moments of cheeky wit found within Wrinkles, and anybody that has experienced a loved one going through Alzheimer's will surely find the material quite effecting.
