Wolf Children

Preview by Jack Foley

PART slice-of-life drama about the joys and tribulations of single mother Hana raising her half-wolf kids, part rite-of-passage movie about finding your place in the world, Wolf Children is a funny, moving and accessible film directed by a true anime great.

Wolf Children, directed by Mamoru Hosoda (Summer Wars, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time), comes to Blu-ray, DVD and Collector’s Edition on December 23, 2013.


Nineteen-year-old Hana is studying at university when she falls in love with a mysterious classmate with a highly unusual secret – he is the last descendant of Japan’s now-extinct grey wolves, and possesses the ability to transform into a wolf.

Not daunted by this, Hana and her wolf man lover start a family, with energetic daughter Yuki (‘Snow’) soon followed by her more timid little brother Ame (‘Rain’).

But when tragedy strikes and her wolf man suddenly dies, Hana is left to cope with the two young children on her own – and both Yuki and Ame have inherited their dad’s power to shift between human and wolf form.

Moving to the countryside and the seclusion of an abandoned old house in the mountains, Hana hopes to raise her family away from prying eyes …but life’s not that simple.
