"Oh Joy, Oh Joy, Oh Joy!" "It's funny, it's sad, it's sweet, it's heartbreaking! It's brilliant!" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"Exceptional! Outstanding! A Genuine Crowd Pleaser!"
"Imaginatively and sensitively explores one of the major issues confronting most of the developed world. A consistently sharp edge of humor offsets, but does not trivialize, the sadness and tragedy of the material."
- Hollywood Reporter
"An Indie Animation Hit!" "It's beautiful, traditionally animated work that doesn't need noisy CG razzle dazzle to touch the heart and inspire the soul!" - Animation Magazine
"Uses Classic Methods to Create Magic!" "The subject of old age gets the kind of attention it deserves but is too rarely afforded in the affecting Wrinkles. Featuring lovable characters and a beautifully crafted, understated plot that emerges elegantly from their fears, fantasies and forgetfulness, this thought-provoking, universally comprehensible film skews naturally towards adult auds. Wider exposure is assured." - Variety
WRINKLES Animation, Ignacio Ferreras, Spain, 2012, 89 minutes
Available in both English and original Spanish with English subtitles
Martin Sheen (The West Wing, The Departed), Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises, Weeds), and George Coe (Funny People, Archer) lead a cast of eccentric characters who rebel against authority in this wonderfully animated and poignant comedy for adults. The story opens with former bank manager Emilio being dispatched to a retirement home by his family. His new roommate is a wily wheeler-dealer named Miguel, who cheerfully swindles small amounts of cash from the more befuddled residents but is also full of handy insider tips that are crucial to survival. Like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in an old folks home, we are introduced to daily pill regimens, electric gates, and nighttime joyrides, as the reality of Emilio's future life begins to sink in. Using hand-drawn animation, Wrinkles moves freely between the inmates’ daily routines and their more colorful, dementia-induced fantasies, leaving plenty of room for both tears and laughter as it pokes pointed fun at society's attitude towards the elderly.
