Animated film about Yuki and Ame, children of human mother Hana and a mysterious wolf/human changeling father. Despite the straight-faced treatment of the notion of people changing into wolves, Hosoda's film is a beautifully realised, mature drama with expert storytelling, dealing with love, grief and the pains of growing up.
