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.Written by
A shop in the city is called "teléfono móbilR". The word in Spanish would be "móvil", not "móbil" (the capital R is a telephone provider company), but that particular shop may be using a name with a typo on purpose to differentiate from others; that's not uncommon in Spain. See more »
The end credits roll with normal music, then the music is replaced with an elderly man's voice trying to sing Gardel's "Adiós que me voy", with hospital background noise. The old man forgets some lyrics and tells the audience we don't know him. See more »

Amazon says it's a poignant comedy... there's no comedy here.
"...a cast of eccentric characters who rebel against authority in this wonderfully animated and poignant comedy about life in an old folks home."
A very well done movie, but what a deceptive description. It is truly heartbreaking... you've been warned.
