Consensus: Poignant and tender without succumbing to schmaltz, Wrinkles offers a thoughtful -- and beautifully animated -- look at old age.

Rare is the "cartoon" that penetrates and even haunts; Wrinkles is not easily forgotten.

Heavy doses of humor and empathy, along with gorgeous hand-drawn animation, keep things from getting too morbid.

Film Journal International

Literally dedicated to "all the old people of today, and of tomorrow," this animated look at aging is deeply humanistic, immensely moving, often hilarious and quite, quite wonderful.

Unfolding in simple yet wonderfully expressive hand-drawn frames, the film's unsparingly observant plot depicts the slide into senility with empathy and imagination.
