The latest flight of fancy from Mamoru Hosoda ("Summer Wars"), this English-dubbed anime tells the tale of Hana, a woman who falls in love and forms a unique family with a man able to shape-shift between man and wolf. Tragedy leads Hana to take her children to the Japanese countryside, all the better for two kids who frequently transform into woodland creatures. A lyrical, gentle tale of children learning to fit in despite their differences (even if theirs are furrier than most!), Hosoda's tale of family ties is imbued with a natural wonder and sense of the fantastic impossible to resist.
