So wait, this movie was about the kids not having to choose between their humanity and animosity yet at they end they both choose one side, why not both?
>>
>>100149713
cuz otherwise the writers wouldn't have been able to make me cry like a bitch at the end
>>

My brother showed me this during my exam week making it im-fucking-possible to focus on studying. Damn near every scene I just wanted to reach into the screen to give her a helping hand.
>>
>>100149713
The Dad tried to choose both and look at what happened to him
>>
Because that's what they decided to do.

And she had to be able to respect that choice and let them go their own ways. That's what being a mother is all about. I guess. That's how I saw it at least.
>>
I liked the movie but the drama with the son to me felt too forced. Specifically how long the rain search went on for. It's not a bad scene but it just goes on so long. I thought it was terribly awkward in a movie that was nearly perfect up to that point.
>>
>>100149713
This whole movie would have been moot if they had been born at the same time OP
>>
>>100150202
but anon the dad only died because his "instincts told him to hunt one more birdy!"
>>
>>100149713
Did you not watch the movie? Daughter leaned towards a more human life due to her tragic experience with harming another human whereas the boy did not have a father figure to rely upon so he distanced himself from the world and decided to pursue the life of the wolf ever since that visit with that wise wolf. It goes on and on, well that's just my interpretation of it.
>>
>>100152013
>visit wise wolf
Did you watch the movie? It was a fox.
>>
>animosity

I don't think that's the correct usage.
>>
>>100149713
The girl chose both, sort of
Boys are dumb though so he could only rely on instinct and ended up falling for the RULES OF NATURE
>>
>>100152046
The one that was imprisoned? It's been awhile since I've seen it.
>>
>>100152194
But the wolf was captive his entire life
Didn't have much to be wise about
>>
>>100152046

That part was stupid, though. Foxes don't have jobs a protectors of the forest or whatever and they don't teach wolves how follow after them.

I don't have a problem with unrealistic things in a fantasy, but when you anthropomorphize the animals like that, it really undermines the whole human v. animal conflict that was the entire point of the movie.
>>
>>100152115
wait but it was growing between the siblings all throughout the movie though?
>>
>>100152254
We still don't know what him and the boy conversed about but just because he's old of age does not steer him away from being wise.

>Didn't have much to be wise about
Pretty sure he shared wisdom regarding wolf instinct and etc.
>>
>>100152321
In ancient fables Japan believed as such anon!

(Many still do to this day!)
>>
>>100150601
That's what it would have been if she hadn't smiled at the end when the rain stopped.

That scene really freaked me out when I first watched it. It's like she does a completely 180
>>
>>100152194
No that was a wolf that was raised his whole life in a cage.
>>
>>100149713
I just watched the dub yesterday and I gotta say it was fantastic! Is there anything else that really hit's it out of the park that's similar?
>>
Furry shit and if you like your a furry

ALL DAT SHIT TASTES
>>
>>100154386
The boy only did that because he was bullied his whole life anon.
>>
>>100154675
>implying I haven't been bullied my whole life.
>>
>>100154675
Where the FUCK do you think you are
>>
>>100149713
I hope we het a sequel detailing the exploits of the daughter.
>>
>>100149713

No, you idiot. It wasn't about that at all. It's a fucking metaphor. It's about a kid choosing what they want to be in life. It's about a mother being forced to fight the urges to try to protect her children all their lives and to let them actually have lives of their own. It's about growing up.

You could replace the wolf aspect with any societal construct and the story would be the same. An example would be that the dad was a soldier who died in war. The children then decide if they want to be military brats or not.

God /a/ is so fucking thick sometimes. Go back to watching Sword Art Online or Naruto or something simple...

>>100158345

So basically it's if one wants to yiff or not? Alright.
