  • Summary: Wrinkles portrays the friendship between Emilio and Miguel, two elderly gentlemen shut away in a retirement home. Recent arrival Emilio, in the early stages of Alzheimer, is helped by Miguel to avoid ending up on the feared top floor of the care home, also known as the lost cause or "assisted" floor. Their wild plan infuses their otherwise tedious days with humor and tenderness. Expand

    Ignacio Ferreras's traditionally animated Wrinkles is 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.

    An exceptional animated feature from Spain, Wrinkles imaginatively and sensitively explore one of the major issues confronting most of the developed world: how to look after senior citizens in a rapidly aging population.

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

    Although nothing here quite matches the moving, life-in-five-minutes montage in Pixar’s “Up,” one swooping flashback sequence comes very close.

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

    Ultimately, though, Wrinkles doesn’t offer the aesthetic rewards necessary to make its sad material compelling.

    A sensitive and extremely strong animation that is not afraid of showing the reality of life in your own ending. Is good to say that "Wrinkles" was released in 2011, being quite original at that time. The movie shows the life in its most difficult moment, exploring the friendship, the horrible Alzheimer and the strength (yes, stregth) of the old people. What is beautiful in the old people is that they are the people who have more experience and memories than anybody. - Imagine yourself as an old person, remembering everything that you've lived and knowing that is close to the end. It's a little disturbing and nostalgic and "Wrinkles" gives you these feelings. An amazing movie. (Sorry for the english mistakes). Expand
