Wrinkles doesn't offer the aesthetic rewards necessary to make its sad material compelling.

Bleak, funny, sympathetic and desperately sad ...

In its visionary dream and flashback sequences, the film becomes a comment on the rapidly diminished state of traditional animation.

Wrinkles is a nuanced, rich look at human frailty and the beauty of life, alternating between frank and tenderly humane notes with perfect precision, making the conventional beats its story does hit genuinely poignant.

A beautiful, subtle horror movie about the rigors of old age, made all the more horrifying because it will happen to all of us fortunate enough to live a long life.

A charming production, poignant and tender and one that is bound to move and compel you - while remaining so effortlessly subtle throughout.

Rare is the "cartoon" that penetrates and even haunts; Wrinkles is not easily forgotten.

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.

Animated tale about the travails of the elderly has heart and humour.

With its wry moments and poetic interludes, this is a film that takes its time, though time is all the old-age home's residents have. But it's the mixture of melancholy, wistfulness, and ennui here that makes the headiest, heartiest cocktail.

The film doesn't wallow in grief; it's a thoughtful and nuanced portrait of a stage of life we often choose not to see.

A thought-provoking consideration of ageing from the perspective of the elderly that is, perhaps ironically, hard to forget.

Lots to love here, but it's all perhaps a little soft.

The subject of old age gets the kind of attention it deserves but is too rarely afforded in the affecting Wrinkles.

Unfolding in simple yet wonderfully expressive hand-drawn frames, the film's unsparingly observant plot depicts the slide into senility with empathy and imagination.

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.

The animation is simple but lovely.

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.

Poignant animated feature about senior citizens is one the year's best Spanish films.

This movie has the same desolate quality as Philip Larkin's poem The Building, and yet it is tender and lovable, too.
