Gran, wanna see this?
What a good-looking young man.
He is, isn't he?
Does he come from money?
I don't think so.
Then just have a little fun and dump him.
But he's so good to me.
Be good to him. Men love getting compliments. When you grow up you see things that you didn't used to see. Knowing more might seem good, but it turns you into a coward. It only happens once in your life, and it never comes back.

The title is misleading because he isn't exactly a werewolf and it isn't a horror movie. It is called Wolf Boy in Korea, which is a much better name. The main part of the movie is about socializing a feral child and the sweet relationship that develops between him and his adopted family, especially the older daughter. Although there are elements of fantasy toward the end of the story, enjoyment of the movie doesn't depend on that.
The cinematography is lovely and the acting is excellent, except for the villain being a little over the top. Although the movie seems to be geared toward teens and young adults, it is also entertaining for mature audiences who like a classic kind of emotional ride.
