Based on Paco Roca´s comic of the same title (2008 National Comic Prize), Wrinkles is a 2D animated feature-length film for an adult audience. Wrinkles portrays the friendship between Emilio and Miguel, two aged gentlemen shut away in a care home. Recent arrival Emilio, in the early stages of Alzheimer, is helped by Miguel and colleagues to avoid ending up on the feared top floor of the care home, also known as the lost causes or assisted floor. Their wild plan infuses their otherwise tedious day-to-day with humour and tenderness, because although for some their lives is coming to an end, for them it is just beginning.
An astonishing cocktail of friendship, resistance and life set among the unexpected landscape of an elderly care facility.

This is, without doubt, one of the most touching animated films I've ever seen. Wrinkles tells the story of several elderly characters dealing with Alzheimer's, old age and the inevitable end, creating a beautifully powerful and moving film. Wrinkles manages to mix laughs and heart-breaking scenes perfectly, which allows the movie to be uplifting and warming, despite the emotional subject. The animation itself is stunning! Many of the scenes in this movie simply wouldn't work without the magic of animation. The characters are hugely believable and you'll find yourself falling in love with all of them (especially Martin Sheen's character!). I'd recommend this to all fans of cinema (both lovers of animated films and those who don't usually watch them).
