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 »
When you see a gas station, we stop and I get some water to take the pills.
What are you saying, Antonia? We said no medicines! We are not going to be slaves of old age.
Yes, but I brought only the constipation pills and the circulation ones. I have not brought the stomach ones, or the sugar ones, or the arthritis ones...

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 »

Heartwarming and heart wrenching
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.
