The Wolf Children (Ōkami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki) a movie by Mamoru Hosoda
A short glimpse on my Instagram photos would prove that am currently on an illustration streak. One of my great inspirations are the works of Studio Ghibli's own Hayao Miyazaki. The other day however, H discovered a new animated movie for me. This one is directed bu Mamoru Hosoda of "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars." Am not a true blue Japanese anime fan in general but I am one absolute Miyazaki fan. I have a complete collection of his work and believe me watching them is so therapeutic for me. Nevermind if I understand the full Japanese language. But when I looked through the trailer of "The Wolf Children," I'd probably add director Hosoda to my list.
ABOUT THE MOVIE:
A human girl who falls in love with a dashing young man who mysteriously sneaks in at her college, who turns out to be half man half wolf. Two beautiful "half-wolf" offspring named Ame (Rain - because he was born on a rainy day) and Yuki (Snow- because she was born on a snowy day). Plus a beautiful countryside setting as such in all Miyazaki movies. What's not to love eh? I dunno when this would be shown in the Philippines or if it would ever be...but no matter, I would always find ways to watch it one way or the other. For the rest of you guys out there, here are the screening dates and countries.
July 25, 2012 - (Paris, France World Premier)
August 21, 2012 - (Japan)
September 13, 2012 - (Australia)

*Plus this movie couldn't have come at a better time considering the preparations I've been doing for the reopening of our e-store come end of September. But that's just about the beans am gonna spill for now. Till next. Have a productive, creative start of the week. Happy Monday!
