Storyline

Based on Paco Roca's comic of the same title (2008 Spanish National Comic Prize), WRINKLES is a 2D animated feature-length film for an adult audience. Wrinkles portrays the friendship between Emilio and Miguel, two aged gentlemen shut away in a care home. Recent arrival Emilio, in the early stages of Alzheimer, is helped by Miguel and colleagues to avoid ending up on the feared top floor of the care home, also known as the lost causes or "assisted" floor. Their wild plan infuses their otherwise tedious day-to-day with humor and tenderness, because although for some their lives are coming to an end, for them it is just a new beginning.

Heartwarming and heart wrenching
19 July 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

A beautifully told and scenically depicted tale of friendship, love, cynicism, disappointment and hope in the twilight years. It's a pleasant departure from the Disney-Pixar brand of animated movies, and hits the right notes with realistic problems, real-life humor and eccentric characters.

If you rate a good movie as one which can make you feel a range of emotions, from sympathy, happiness, sadness, to thrill of adventure, hope and that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you see a P&G ad, this movie is sure to delight and stay with you for a reasonably long time.

It does get slow in bits. You go through topsy turvy emotions with Emilio and Miguel's friendship and quirkiness along the way. There's Antonia and other characters to lend life to the gloominess of a general old age home. But what you can never guess, is the heart warming end to this beautifully crafted movie.

Worth a watch. Go see it now.
