Wolfwalkers mixes heartwarming humanity and a strong dose of political overtone, in a magical, melancholy folklore tale that's equal parts mature and carefree. Set in an imagined Irish town, where the theme of good v. evil is again echoed, with a resounding political twist that's as relevant today as ever before, Wolfwalkers is for sure one of the best movies of 2020.
Wolfwalkers is a much welcomed breath of fresh air in the animation world, thanks to its unapologetically anti-Hollywood nature -- the unmistakable accents, the breathtakingly poetic, traditional hand-drawn style, as well as its message that's for the most part overwhelming for a Hollywood production. The likeability of the characters, the perfect soundtracks and its abundant heart and soul all contribute to the greatness of Wolfwalkers, which is guaranteed to be a fun, dazzling and tearjerking ride. Highly recommended.
