"Wolves disguised as Men", 20 March 2002
Author: OttoVonB from Switzerland

This is a very particular animated movie... well the Japanese excel at that, but however smart they make them, their manga very often go over the top in the final act (Mononoke Hime, Akira...). On a side note it also has a great score, something most uncommon in it's peers. Jin Roh is a very down to earth story all along and never gets carried away. Funny for a film about being carried away... by ideals. The whole story draws countless parallels (willingly) with The Little Red Riding Hood (the real version... the one that doesn't end too well for the titular girl), here the code-name for terrorist child bomb-carriers, the wolves being an elite anti-terrorist force (chiefly traumatised protagonist Fuse).

This was the last fully hand-drawn Japanese animated feature (1999) and the bleak realistic art is all the more impressive for it. The screenplay itself is a perfectly layered plot of fatality and failed-redemption. This is no cry for anti-terrorism (that would make post-2001 audiences cheer) but about de-humanization.

If you want monsters and heroes and magic, go see something else... this is a moving example of how a good story can rip your heart out. A must-see!
