Why is this movie so perfect?
i cried like a bitch
samefag, bait, etc
I did too Anon. When Hana goes out to look for Ame.,, God, the feels.
Also, Ame's a dick. I understand his motivations and everything, but you couldn't hug your mother goodbye before you left? Ass
Because of the subject matter and many of the elements in the movie itself, it has a profound effect on people that it resonates with.
There are people that don't like it and I think part of it was because the movie itself wasn't universal. The themes in the movie are certainly universal but the actual subject matters grate on certain people. The movie is pretty emotionally manipulative and if you're not into that you're REALLY not going to like the film considering that's a huge part of it. Don't get me wrong, all of the emotionally manipulative scenes in the movie have such large chunks of truth to them that it physically pains me whenever I see them- but again, a lot of people aren't into that.
I imagine it was quite hard for him to want a sentimental goodbye when his mother only accepted his choice after he was already leaving. And at that point he wouldn't go back- he couldn't go back. His choice was made and he had to have conviction about it.
That makes sense, show your mother that she needs to let go, forcibly if necessary. Cut the cord and all that.
I guess it can be argued that if he did do that, it might've undone all he worked for.
What subject matters would grate on people? I just finished the movie, and I haven't heard anything about people not liking it, so I'm just curious.
Ame a furryshit.
Shit got my dick hard
>guy transfrmed into a werewolf
does this slut like bestiality or what
That scene's not even so much about Ame as it is about Hana. The line she says before he goes "I haven't even done a single thing for you", while morbidly depressing, alludes to her thinking Ame still needs her. Ame at this point is an adult and her trying to bring him back shows how she hasn't recognized him as an adult. It's only after he leaves she realizes this and thus realizes that she HAS to let go. It's not that she doesn't deserve to be with her son, but because Ame deserves to live life on his own terms- like an adult.
Well, my biggest problem with the movie is the ending. I feel like Yuki's character arc isn't fully completed. Ame's and Hana's play so well together, but many questions I had about Yuki lingered after it ended. What happened between her and Souhei? Has she become more accepting of her lupine half, or does she further repress it? We see that Ame takes so much after his father, and we can assume Yuki takes after her mother, but all she needed was another 5-10 minutes or so to wrap up her development.
I feel like a problem with Hosoda's work is the the endings leave something to be desired. I saw this too when I watched The Girl Who Lept Through Time.
Like I said: some people REALLY don't like how emotionally manipulative it is. There are also people who can't relate to A) themes of motherhood B) Small families because they have no context to that sort of thing (I was the same with summer wars- I just don't get the "fuckhuge family" thing but my italian friend loves it) and C) furry sex. That scene is fucking beautiful but ofc people are gonna be like LOL DOG DIK and then tune out because it's really jarring.
case in point
What movie is this?
>That scene is fucking beautiful
please go back to /d/
If a director's work has left you wanting more then I don't see the problem with the film.
Narrative parallels of character emotions are wasted on you, sadly
there are a lot of problems when that happens.
you obviously have been watching shitty movies that don't have a proper conclusion,
Wolf Children: Ame and Yuki
I think the whole thing in HD is on vimeo or somethin
>woman and werewolf sex scene
>IT'S AN ARTISTIC EXPRESSION GUYS YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW DEEP IT IS
I can see how Yuki's character is a bit underdeveloped at the end, but you have to recognize the immense amount of change she underwent throughout the whole movie. She started as this grungy, demanding little wolf pup and grew into a beautiful young lady, which is a considerable amount of character development. I think the ending, especially with the symbol of the rising sun, shows that both of their stories are just beginning, thus there's still more she has to learn about herself.
The entire plot of the movie wouldn't exist if this isn't at least implied.
I got that. but it still raises questions
