Wolf Children (2012)

Director: Mamoru Hosoda. 117 min. Rated PG. Japan. Animation.

A cartoon about the love between a high school girl ... and a werewolf. It's rated PG, but as in innumerable other Japanese instances, it's actually a 2-hour adult-themed live-action film that is merely using animation as a conduit to tell its story. And indeed, some landscapes of the Japanese countryside pictured here are so advanced in detail, I could not discern if it was human/computer drawing, or live-action film. This is a fantasy for adults to relax, watch in awe, and enjoy.

PS: Thanks again, Ali S.!
