The cutest movie you could ever see!
9 November 2009 | by nicolasstrappiniSee all my reviews

This movie is unbelievably charming and cute.

It's about the friendship between a wolf and a little goat. The wolf defends the little goat from his wolf friends.... and you can really believe they love one another!

But the movie does deal with more adult themes too. It keeps you caring about what happens to the characters throughout.

The production values are quite good and the characters themselves have quite a wide range of expressions. The designs for the wolves don't look like typical anime designs. And the plot is less convoluted than most anime. I wouldn't show it to the youngest children as there is some mild violence and threat. I think it'd be rated PG.

But anyway You have to see it!
