Critic Reviews for Wool 100%
If Tim Burton were to go to Japan to make a movie about two elderly sisters living in a house filled with junk, and a girl who invades their lives and spends day and night knitting a red sweater, it would be something like Wool 100%.
Wild yet gentle, the fantasy film Wool 100% is a playful contraption illustrating the kinship between movies, fairy tales and dreams.
an astonishing achievement
Audience Reviews for Wool 100%
This is essentially an absurdist Japanese Fairy Tale. Not everything always entirely makes sense but it's made quite obvious that it really isn't meant to. It's a very odd little film that packs a quarter-ton of whimsy in a 100-pound bag.
A weird one. Two old Japanese sisters collect special (to them) unwanted things from the town and store them in their bursting-at-the-seams mansion and then draw coloured pictures of them. One day they find they've inadvertently also brought home a wild and noisy knitting girl (called Knit-Again) who starts unravelling their neat and orderly lives. A little like Angela Carter with her feminist subversions of fairy stories, and a little like Hausu for being so strange. And a little like nothing I've seen before. The plot is cryptic and light as a feather, so you may get bored waiting for an exposition that never comes, or you may, like me, just enjoy the journey and the uniqueness of the whole thing. Highly recommended.
slow, but interesting. fun animations with toys! a bit creepy at times, and interesting look into loss
