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.

With its wry moments and poetic interludes, this is a film that takes its time, though time is all the old-age home's residents have. But it's the mixture of melancholy, wistfulness, and ennui here that makes the headiest, heartiest cocktail.

In its visionary dream and flashback sequences, the film becomes a comment on the rapidly diminished state of traditional animation.
