'Weekends' is the story of a young boy shuffling between the homes of his recently divorced parents. Surreal dream-like moments mix with the domestic realities of a broken up family in this hand animated film set in 1980's Toronto.
After her werewolf lover unexpectedly dies in an accident while hunting for food for their children, a young woman must find ways to raise the werewolf son and daughter that she had with him while keeping their trait hidden from society.
The movie follows a 4-year old boy who is struggling to cope with the arrival of a little sister in the family, until things turn magical. A mysterious garden in the backyard of the boy's home becomes a gateway allowing the child to travel back in time and encounter his mother as a little girl and his great-grandfather as a young man. These fantasy-filled adventures allow the child to change his perspective and help him become the big brother he was meant to be.Written by
Makoto Tanijiri designed the family house to have stairs (and different levels) as a key feature: "A child will be able to see the bottom room clearly from the garden, but an adult will only be able to see what's right in front of them. The child's view will change as he grows up." See more »
A lovely story that every brothers/sisters should watch
With a great photography, characters very well worked, The mad way that the things are show for us, is a little bit confuse but, with time you start to understand, and turn the experience to watch better, I like the protagonists, the relationship between they are basically what happens when a new baby comes, and have jealous, but it's amazing how the older learn about this with that journey. A very cute movie <33
