Inadvertently, this is going to be a predominantly Japanese round of brief movie summaries. One is a Japan-inspired movie, the others are Japanese movies.
Hosoda Mamoru’s latest piece, Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki (henceforth Wolf Children for short), is the story of Hana and her children. Hana falls in love with a wolf-man and they have two children together – Ame and Yuki. Though the children are the titular characters, the story is really about Hana and her struggles trying to raise two half-wolf children alone after the wolf-man dies.
